Pilot protests 3,000 dollar bill for landing on Pennsylvania Turnpike

PITTSBURGH, Nov 20:  A pilot who landed his small plane on a rural stretch of the Pennsylvania Turnpike after its propeller fell off is protesting a 3,000 dollar bill he received for towing his aircraft from the roadway, saying such fees could cause other pilots to seek out more dangerous emergency landing options. The pilot, Brian Nicholson, said he and a co-pilot made a snap decision to land on an expressway near California, Pennsylvania, about 36 miles south of Pittsburgh. (agencies)
