The small plane that crashed Monday into a lake in Sussex County and sank to the bottom finally is back on shore.

A massive operation underway since Monday afternoon culminated before 1:30 p.m. Tuesday with the single-engine Citabria plane emerging from Lake Aeroflex in Andover Township. It had been nearly 26 hours since the pilot, identified as 49-year-old John Wells, had taken off from the neighboring Andover-Aeroflex Airport and crashed into New Jersey's deepest natural lake, at least 100 yards from shore.
