The pilot of a light aircraft which had to make an emergency landing on a beach in Devon this evening has spoken out about the incident.

Zac Rockey was flying the vintage plane along the Jurassic Coast when the engine failed.

The nearest area for him to make an emergency landing was Jacob’s Ladder beach at Sidmouth, which he did safely at about 5pm.

The experienced pilot had been asked to take the aircraft, by its owners, down to Bodmin Airfield for an event to mark the 100 anniversary of the end of the First World War; the era the plane is from.

It was on his return that he started to get into difficultly.

He said: “We flying along taking in the it began to lose power, it failed, the options available to me in the cockpit didn’t work. So I had to look somewhere to land.

“You look for somewhere near something or people so that if there are complications you will be able to get help more easily.

“You know what I have had better runways. It was not ideal.”

He added that all his training came into play as he dealt with the situation, which could have been a lot worse.

Zac was showing the aircraft off to a prospective buyer while at Bodmin but it had not been successful.

He also thanked the coastguard crews for their help and support following the incident.

The plane will now need to be dismantled in order to get it off the beach.

It's not exactly the best hand ever dealt.

Why can't they load it on a barge rather than dismantling?

The problem there is that having lifted it off a barge at a convenient small port, it would still have to be dismantled and transported by road to an airfield for repair.
Easier to dismantle it where it stands and load straight on to a road vehicle.

Pictures of the dismantling process.

I understand why they can't take off from the beach but if they got it to solid ground they could just pop in a new hamster and fly away.

Take a rubber band, a really big rubber band, slip one end around the tail skid, slip the other end around that U-shaped hook sticking out the back of the propeller. Then, wind that sucker really tight...

I'm photo safari'ing the other day when I happen to look up and see this plane making a long sweeping turn, and decided to take a practice shot picture. Which isn't the best pic I've ever taken.

Is it just me, or do the proportions of the plane look a little 'fat'? It looks to be a particularly fat-bodied plane, doesn't it? Is it just me?

I thought maybe it was one of the newer planes, like a Dreamliner, or Airbus A380. Nope.

Idk what I took a pic of.

See my post #557 on Page 38.
I think that will shed some light on the subject.

Forgive me for not posting a proper link, but I'm using my iPad and it's more of an art than a science when it comes to the finer points of interwebbery.

Not likely, Dreamlifters and such are rarer than hen's teeth. Not impossible, just not likely.

I think I saw a Dreamlifter!!!

Wiki says there are four of them. And I think the plane in my post is one of them. Blue engine nacelles, check. Natural-finish wings, check. The 'step' in the fuselage above and behind the cockpit, check. Stubby tail, check.

I think I saw a Dreamlifter!!!

My pleasure!

Using the registration of the aircraft in my earlier post, N718BA, I went to Flightradar24 and did a search which produced details of recent flights by that aircraft:

Name:  Dreamlifter.JPG
Views: 101
Size:  162.7 KB

Registrations of the other three aircraft should be easy to find so you could carry out searches and then correlate aircraft flights and dates.
If you go down that road, perhaps you'd let us know which route 'your' aircraft was on.

PS Sorry about the Honda ad!
