LAKE NORMAN — The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating after a Progressive Aerodyne SeaRey flipped over while attempting to land on Lake Norman early Saturday morning.

Channel 9 was there as crews pulled the plane out of the water near Long Island in Catawba County.

It happened just after 7:30 a.m. on Lake Norman near the Northview Harbor community.

Witnesses told state troopers a Progressive Aerodyne SeaRey plane was trying to make a water landing, but toppled forward and crashed near Lake Norman State Park.

Officials said nearby boaters rescued the plane’s pilot and a passenger, who are both expected to be OK.

In order to prevent the plane from sinking, crews towed it to shore near the Long Island Airport

Crews from Sherrills Ford-Terrell Fire and Rescue, Denver Fire Department, Catawba County Sheriff’s Office Lake Patrol NC Wildlife Resources Commission and North Carolina State Highway Patrol responded to the crash.
