Pilot OK After Emergency Landing On Myrtle Beach

Second Incident In Area This Year

South Carolina's Myrtle Beach is a popular place this year... for sun worshippers, and for pilots looking for a place to set down in an emergency.

Officials with the FAA confirmed a single-engine airplane made an emergency landing Wednesday morning, according to the Myrtle Beach Sun News.

FAA spokesperson Kathleen Bergen said the pilot of the Cessna 150L reported mechanical problems before landing on the beach near North Litchfield at about 1100 EDT. No injuries were reported.

Wednesday's incident is the second in the area this year involving a small plane. As ANN reported, on March 23 a Piper PA-18 owned by Sky Signs LLC of Conway, SC crashed into the Atlantic Ocean while attempting to make a 180-degree turn, ending upside down in the ocean some 100 feet from shore.

The pilot in that accident was able to exit the plane, and swim to the beach.
