EAST MORICHES, N.Y. (AP) -- A New York pilot has experienced deja phew.    The same pilot who made an emergency landing last week in the median of a Long Island highway did the exact same thing Friday. In the nearly the exact same place.

Suffolk County police say a single-engine Challenger ultralight plane landed on the eastbound lanes of Sunrise Highway because of engine trouble just before 1 p.m. Pilot Frank Fierro landed the same plane in almost the same place on July 10.

Police say Fierro had taken the plane for the first time since last week's incident. It was taken back to nearby Spadaro Airport in East Moriches.
