"Three people on the plane. One being the pilot. They flew into Niagara, spent some time in Niagara and were flying back. They attempted to land at Republic Airport. They missed the runway four times. They were redirected to Kennedy. They missed the runway twice here at Kennedy. As they came around they ran out of fuel. They caught the roof top of the church on the corner of Shore and Clarendon Road down the block. At that time the plane careened over into the wires in front of 113 Clarendon Drive."

"The wires prevented the plane from actually striking the ground. It hung it up about one foot (0.3 meters) from hitting the ground. When the police got here the three people that were in the plane were actually sitting on the curb, across the street from where the plane had gone down."

"We have about two dozen homes that are down. FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) is on scene. PSE&G (utility provider) is on scene. We're going to put, attempt to shut the power down. We're going to remove the plane off the wires, and then at that time they'll try to restore the power in the neighborhood. We have about two dozen homes that have no power at this time."

"They all appear to be fine at this time. The pilot speaks English. The other two actually are visiting. They're living in Flushing, (Queens, New York City) but they're actually visiting from Korea."
Police on Long Island, just outside New York City said a small plane carrying three people went down in a residential neighborhood of Valley Stream Sunday night.
Newsday reports that a disoriented pilot flying a rented single-engine plane flying in thick fog with a disoriented pilot ran out of fuel and clipped the roof of a church just after 10 p.m.
Nassau Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder said the three on board, all of Flushing, Queens, were associated with a flight school at Republic Airport in Farmingdale. He identified the pilot as Dongl Kim, 27, and the passengers as Hung Joo-Na, 29 and Jung Woo, 26. He said the plane had been rented at Republic. All three sustained minor injuries.
The fixed-wing Cessna made four attempts to land at Republic but the pilot became disoriented and missed each time due to dense fog, Valley Stream Fire Chief Jason Croak said. The plane was then redirected to Kennedy Airport but the pilot became disoriented again and the aircraft eventually ran out of fuel, officials said. The plane clipped the roof of Hillside Avenue's Revival Outreach Ministries. It then glided into the wires above the front yard of a home a block away and ended up suspended a few feet above the home's front yard.
The wires stopped the plane from striking the home, police spokesman Det. Richard LeBrun said.
The pilot and passengers had safely made it clear of the plane and appeared uninjured while sitting on the sidewalk when first responders had arrived, Ryder said.
Officials said about two dozen homes were without power.
The National Weather Service had issued a dense fog advisory at the time of the crash.
