By City News Service The pilot of a two-seater stunt plane made an emergency landing Friday on the sand in Seal Beach, police said. The emergency landing occurred around 11 a.m. on the beach between 12th and 13th streets, said Sgt. Bob Mullins of the Seal Beach Police Department. The 1996 Extra 300L two-seater lost power while flying over the ocean near the beach, he said.

Because it was a weekday, the beach was not crowded, giving the pilot room to land. However, the landing was a close call for one beachgoer, who said she was sunbathing and listening to music with earplugs when she heard a loud noise, opened her eyes and saw one of the plane’s wings go over her head. The plane’s passenger said he was given the flight on the stunt plane as a birthday present. He said the pilot was doing acrobatic stunts over the ocean and was about to return to Fullerton when the engine started sputtering. last_img read more
