A small plane departed Westchester County Airport en route to a location in New Jersey. Soon after becoming airborne, the pilot declared an emergency, citing a mechanical failure. Air Traffic Contol diverted the plane to JFK Airport, where the PAPD Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighter Unit staged for the emergency landing. At approximately 8:30 p.m., the plane safely landed at JFK. No injuries were reported. 
Great job by the pilot, PAPD ARFF,  PA Operations and Air Traffic Contol.
