A small plane made an emergency landing on the beach in Lewes last night near Herring Point and Gordon’s Point.

Sussex County EMS officials say that the plane apparently lost power and was forced to make the emergency landing.

Only the pilot and the female passenger were on board and no one was injured.

Officials say there was no damage to the plane.

WBOC reports that witnesses say that pilot told them he was going to land on Route 1 but wound up on the beach instead.
