From the Daily News:
An NYPD chopper made an emergency landing early Saturday, flying low over some homes in Queens before safely setting down in a soccer field, a witness said.
The helicopter landed on the Metropolitan Oval Soccer Field in Maspeth just before 3 a.m., police said.
No one was injured.
It's unclear why the helicopter pilot felt the need to make an emergency landing. The aircraft had no mechanical problems, police said.
Interesting that the field's lights just happened to be on at that hour.
In other news, the film "Couple of Cops" starring Bruce Willis and "The Bounty" starring Jennifer Aniston have been taking turns filming in that very area all night just about every night (including last night) for a few weeks now causing major driving, parking and bus riding problems for area residents.
But I'm sure it's just a coincidence.
