A small airplane carrying two people made an emergency landing on Jacksonville Beach on Saturday and landed nose down in the sand, police said. No one was injured.
The single-engine plane was returning to a Jacksonville area airfield when it lost power around 5 p.m., Police Sgt. Tom Bingham said. It was forced to land in the sand as beachgoers looked on from a distance.
The impact slightly damaged the plane's propeller and nose wheel.
