Small Plane Makes Emergency Landing in South Africa
A small plane made an emergency landing on the Lookout Beach in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa, on March 24th.
According to the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) spokesperson Craig Lambinon, “On arrival on the scene a Cessna light aircraft was found to have made an emergency landing on the beach and it is believed that the light aircraft may have suffered engine failure while flying over Keurbooms Lagoon while on a pilot training flight from George Airport forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing on the beach.”
There were two people aboard, including the instructor pilot and trainee pilot; both of them remained unharmed.
The Civil Aviation Authority is investigating.
