A pilot and two passengers have escaped unharmed this afternoon after their plane crash-landed on the beach next to Swansea University’s under-construction Bay Campus.
People working at the £200m campus off Swansea’s Fabian Way on the main eastern approach road to Swansea reported seeing “a light aircraft with smoke coming from it” go down in sand dunes next to the sprawling Swansea University second campus building site.
However, the pilot managed to land the plane safely.
A South Wales Police spokesman said: “Emergency services were called to Jersey Marine at around 4pm today following reports that a light aircraft had performed an emergency landing on the beach. Three people on board were uninjured.”
Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service was also called to the scene and sent one crew from its Swansea station but a spokesman for the service said the officers were not needed at the scene and added at 6pm that the fire crew had left the scene.
