Wreckage from northern NY plane crash to be removed

Posted: Updated:
LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -

Wreckage from a plane crash in the Adirondacks will be removed Saturday.

The small plane crashed two weeks ago on the side of Big Burn Mountain near Lake Placid. The pilot and his two passengers survived and were rescued early the next morning.

Saturday, a helicopter will be used to remove the wreckage. Because pieces of the plane could fall on the recreation trails, two will be closed. The Jack Rabbit Trail between the Whiteface Inn Road and the McKenzie Pond Road will be closed. So will the Haystack Mountain Trail on Route 86.
