Cuomo’s Helicopter Makes Emergency Landing in Hudson Valley
Governor Andrew Cuomo’s helicopter had to make an emergency landing at Stewart Airport Wednesday.
In a statement, James Allen, Director of Communications for Governor Cuomo said:
After delivering his final regional State of the State in Albany, Governor Cuomo was on a state police helicopter traveling back to New York City for meetings in the office. Just before 4 p.m., the helicopter filled with fumes that smelled like smoke and the pilot made an emergency landing at Stewart Airport. The cause of the issue is being investigated and the helicopter is currently undergoing maintenance. The Governor and two aides were on board, along with security and the pilot. No one was injured and everyone has been safely transported back to the city.
3 days, 6 States of the State, 149 proposals, 9 hours of speeches, 1,260 miles & 1 emergency landing. Nothing can slow our progress.
