Coastguard search teams and police vehicles could be seen around the area where the light aircraft appeared to have made an emergency landing
Emergency services rushed to Blackpool promenade after a plane landed at the beach. The light aircraft was surrounded by coastguard teams and police vehicles on Thursday night (November 16).
Photos from the scene show the plane on the beach side of the promenade walls at around 8.30pm. At least two HM Coastguard search and rescue vehicles and a Lancashire Constabulary van can be seen parked close by.
The two-seat single-engine Robin 200 aircraft G-HIGB is understood to be operated by a flight training company, according to registration details. Details of its flight path were not publicly available on flight tracking websites following the incident.
It is not known at this stage if anyone was injured but the plane did not appear to have sustained any damage in the landing, from photos at the scene taken by BPL Bible. Lancs Live has contacted Lancashire Police and HM Coastguard for an update.
