I think landing a plane on a highway with strange women is a mission in Grand Theft Auto V.

If you're going to cheat on your wife, don't do it in a single-engine prop plane. It was sound advice when my grandfather gave it to me, and it's sound advice now. Michael Schwartz made an emergency landing this weekend on the Major Deegan Expressway in the Bronx in New York City. At first, this was just an entertaining local news story. Planes occasionally have to make emergency landings and roads are pretty much your only option, especially in a metropolis packed with buildings. (Credit for the lack of injuries is due to Transportation worker Miguel Lopez, who saw the plane descending as he was doing road repairs, and moved to stop traffic with his car.)

Later that night, someone finally reached Mrs. Giovanna Schwartz, who had just found out about the crash, because Mrs. Schwartz was not on the plane. Two other women, however, were. When asked by LoHud why she was not also on the plane, her short reply spoke volumes: "Why don't you ask him? I'm sure he would be happy to tell you."

Sounds like someone's...grounded.
