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.
