June 16, Oswego, N.Y. / Cessna Skylane


At about 05:55 eastern time, a Cessna 182P crashed into Lake Ontario near Oswego, killing the pilot. The pilot was en route from Holley, N.Y., to Rochester when he buzzed some fishing boats two or three times at low level. During the last low pass the left wing struck the water. A friend of the pilot said the two had flown the airplane late the night before, then went to a nightclub until 03:00. At 04:15 the pilot decided to fly the airplane back to Rochester so it would be there at 8 a.m. The friend added that the pilot buzzed his house at 5 a.m. to make him aware he was on his way back to Rochester.
