Float plane goes down in North Long Lake


A float plane crashed on North Long Lake about 1 p.m. Sunday, according to witnesses on the lake.

A man who was fishing with family members on the main bay of North Long Lake, but who wished to remain anonymous, said the pilot — the only person in the plane — was not hurt in the crash. The man said it appeared the pilot had the plane under control while coming in for a landing on the lake before crashing into the lake.
