NARRAGANSETT, R.I. (AP) - Crews have recovered a small plane that crashed off the coast of Rhode Island.

The plane carrying an AT&T; banner went down Monday in the Bonnet Shores area of Narragansett Bay, and was lifted out of the water Tuesday.

The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board will now examine the plane to try to determine why it crashed.

The pilot, identified as 26-year-old Jeremiah Coholan, of North Dartmouth, Massachusetts, suffered only a small scratch and declined medical treatment.

This is not Coholan’s first plane mishap. In January, he was flying a different plane when he was forced to make an emergency landing on a snow-covered field near Rochester, New York.
