    EAST MORICHES, N.Y. — 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 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 just taken the plane out for the first time since last week’s incident. It was taken back to nearby Spadaro Airport in East Moriches. Fierro declined to speak reporters at the scene. He did not appear to have been injured.
