Light Aircraft makes an Emergency Landing

The team were tasked this afternoon to a mayday call regarding a light aircraft with engine trouble over Poole Harbour.

With information sketchy about whether the plane would land safely or not and the location that it might eventually come down, the full team was tasked ready to mount a coastal search if required and to carry out first aid and recovery as appropriate.  Colleagues from other emergency services were also tasked.

In the end, the pilot was able to make a controlled landing in a field near Fitzworth Point, adjacent to Wych Farm and a search was not required.

There were no injuries to either the pilot or his passenger.
