    New Zealand beach plane crash ... amazing !

    Two pilots have attempted a dramatic take-off - from a beach. Their single engine plane made an emergency landing on Martins Bay in New Zealand after aircraft's engine failed. It did not stop the pilots attempting to get it back in the air, along with the help of some nearby holidaymakers.

    I think if the plane did airborne, the result may be more catastrophic. Don't know how he will get over that hill.

    Yes sure looks that way to me too... the wipe-out in the water probably saved his life. How could he even think he could have made it? ... maybe he drank too many Jimmy Buffet margaritas on the beach while he waited for the engine to be fixed ?
