Coastguard search for "ditched" aircraft

By a County Press reporter

Saturday, May 17, 2014


AN ALERT was sparked in the Ventnor area by reports of a low-flying light aircraft off the Isle of Wight resort.
A coastguard helicopter search of The Channel as far afield as Sandown Bay was conducted and a coast rescue team searched inland. 
The reports of a possibly "ditched" aircraft were treated as a false alarm with good intent after nothing was found.
Rescue crews were stood down soon after 5.30pm (Saturday) - an hour after they were alerted.
