QUEENSBURY (AP) - Authorities say two men have escaped injury when their float plane tipped over while they practiced landings and takeoffs on a small lake in eastern New York.

The Warren County Sheriff's Office tells the Post-Star of Glens Falls that 63-year-old Roger Jackson of Cornwall Bridge, Conn., was piloting the plane Thursday afternoon when a pontoon became submerged just before takeoff, causing the aircraft to tip over on Glen Lake, in Queensbury in the southeastern Adirondacks.

Jackson and his flight instructor, 67-year-old Richard Bovey of Argyle, weren't injured.

Efforts to recover the plane were unsuccessful Thursday but are expected to resume today.
