Failure to Launch: Video Shows Plane Tumbling Along New Zealand Shore
A small plane ended up in the water today as the pilot was trying to take off from a beach in New Zealand.
The pilot said engine trouble forced him to make an emergency landing on the beach. He said he thought he had fixed the problem, but video shows the plane tumbling through the water in an attempt to take-off.
Both the pilot and co-pilot are OK. They say the only thing that’s hurt is their pride.
