AIRCRAFT FORCE LANDED ON THE BEACH, NEAR SHIRLEY, NEW YORK





SHIRLEY, N.Y. (AP) — A small plane has made an emergency landing on a Long Island beach as beachgoers watched it glide down smoothly onto soft sand.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Arlene Salac says the two-seater's reported an engine problem before touching down around 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Smith Point County Park.

No injuries were reported.

Witness Frank Esposito tells Newsday the aircraft "came down nice and level," with its engine off, a few hundred yards from beachgoers. Onlooker Brie Claire Drost tells the newspaper the plane circled over the water and a parking lot before the pilot "did a great job landing."

FAA records show the single-engine Cessna 150 is registered to Adrien Bazelais of New York. A possible phone number for him was not accepting messages Saturday, and email messages weren't immediately returned.
