Plane Lands On Cape May Beach

Around 8PM Sunday Night a few residents noticed that a small engine plane was flying carelessly in the sky. The plane was making fast turns and was quickly moving closer to the ground.

Someone was able to grab video of the plan flying in the skies above Cape May. (See Embed video below)

Just after this video was taken, according to the Cape May/ United States Coast Guard Base, the plane landed on their beach. As the Coast Guard went to investigate the man who was flying the plane ran away.

Currently the Coast Guard Base is in lock down until the man can be found.

In a news release from 11:57pm, the Coast Guard said,
