UPDATE: Pilot Makes an Emergency Landing in Ocean City Marsh


By Harry B. Scheeler Jr.

OCEAN CITY – A banner plane reported to be a Piper Cub made an emergency landing in the marsh off of 52 street at around 3. p.m., on Friday, June 4.
A spokesperson for Paramount Air Services in Lower Township which owns the plane said the aircraft had engine trouble and was unable to make it to the Ocean City airport. The pilot of the plane Brian Harris, 23, of West Lafayette, Indiana was uninjured.
Witness Bob Mayfield told NBC 10 he was mowing his lawn when he heard the plane’s engine sputter.
“The neighbor David Jones came down and said ‘look up, the plane looks like its gonna crash, its engine’s fluttering,'” Mayfield said. “So we watched it spin around, it did a 360-degree turn and then it went down behind the wetland.”
The Ocean City police and fire department responded to the scene.
The crash is under investigation by the New Jersey Department of Transportation Division of Aeronautics and Federal Aviation Administration.
