Pilot Recovering from Crashing WWII-Era Plane

ROXBURY, N.Y. -

An Ohio man was piloting a single-engine World War II plane Friday when it crash-landed at a rural upstate New York airfield, The Associated Press reported. James Leavelle, 45, was traveling too fast for the field’s length and tried to pull up for another pass when the 1943 craft clipped some trees and a power line before crashing in a field. Leavelle suffered head and neck injuries that aren’t life-threatening.
