Plane comes a little too close for comfort over Orland Park pool

A plane believed to be flown by an Orland Park lifeguard student pilot flew extremely close above the Orland Park pool, waving it's wings as it buzzed the pool three times, pool goers reported Saturday afternoon.

"It was a little too close for comfort," one witness said. "You could see the lines on the wheels and read the number on the plane."

Pool guards said the student pilot was a lifeguard at the Orland Park Pool, but did not identify him by name.

There was no comment from village officials.

No one was injured, but several pool goers said they were at first concerned when the plane flew over the first time. But it became obvious the pilot, identified as a student by other lifeguards, was merely saying hello to his friends.
