    ATLANTA (Reuters) - Four people died on Friday when the small plane they were riding in crashed on a busy Atlanta-area highway after taking off from a nearby airport, local authorities said....



    The accident shut down a stretch of Interstate 285 and caused traffic problems throughout Atlanta. But no drivers on the major thoroughfare reported any injuries, including a tractor-trailer driver who said the aircraft clipped his truck.

    The Piper 6 had its share of tail problems but was a nice plane, we your engine gives out on take off you do not have enough altitude to turn, and some have landed on highways, safely...

    Would not have been my first choice, too bad they could not have found an empty field.

    Always hate to see any plane have a problem,
