A propeller fell off a single-engine plane and sliced through the roof of a home in upstate New York, officials say.
The plane had sustained enough altitude and speed so the pilot could safely glide to a landing at the pilot's nearby private landing strip.

State police say no one was hurt.
Investigators say the Federal Aviation Administration was alerted and will conduct a joint investigation with state police.
Police say the plane was older and encountered engine trouble as it was flying over the rural village 28 miles northwest of Albany.
Officials say the propeller went into the home's attic, damaging the walls.
