Recovering the plane off the shores of Beach Drive

UPDATES POSTED BELOW.

A water craft has approached the plane that landed on Puget Sound just off the shore of 6000 Beach Drive yesterday afternoon.


We’re assuming the plane will be towed when tides are a bit higher. We are just coming off this morning’s 6:00 am low tide of 1.45 and the next predicted high tide of 8.71 just before 3:00 pm this afternoon.

It’s truly amazing that nobody, including the two men on board the plane, was injured during this emergency landing.
