Authorities say a small plane that was forced to land on an Adirondack lake last week had lost its propeller in midair.

State police tell the Adirondack Daily Enterprise that the privately owned, single-engine Jabiru was flying at about 6,500 feet last Thursday when the propeller came off. The pilot managed to crash-land the plane in Gull Lake in northern Herkimer County.

He and his passenger were rescued soon after by New York Air National Guard helicopter crews flying to Fort Drum.

Two Safe After Small Plane Crash in Adirondack Lake

The plane went down in Gull Lake in the Herkimer County town of Webb,  about 60 miles northeast of Syracuse.

State police say the two people on board weren't seriously hurt.

Adirondack Daily Enterprise reports that two New York Air National Guard Blackhawks were on a training mission when mayday calls came in about the accident at about 9 a.m. Thursday and helped rescue the two people.

 The helicopters took them to the U.S. Army's Fort Drum to be checked out.
