WW2 Plane Crashes Into New York River

A vintage World War Two aircraft has crashed in Hudson River between New York and New Jersey. The plane—a single-seater P-47 Thunderbolt—went down 3.2 km south of George Washington Bridge. Divers later recovered a body—believed to be that of the pilot—from the submerged plane. The cause of the crash has not been confirmed, but engine failure has been cited as a possible cause. The plane was one of three that flew from an airfield in Farmingdale, east of New York City. They were taking part in shooting a promotional video to mark the 75th anniversary of the American Airpower Museum, BBC reported. The two other aircraft—a P-40 and a plane taking the photographs—returned safely to the airfield. Scuba divers recovered the body of a 56-year-old man three hours after the crash. New York police identified the man as William Gordon of Key West, Florida.
