Very sketchy details at the moment, quote: "A twin-engined plane has reportedly crashed into the sea off Dungeness in Kent.

More follows..."

Anyone with anymore info ? Lets hope everyone is ok.

Could be a jet as well then? Hope everything's ok.

Ohh, this is a rather weird incident. Not to worry though, it probably isn't anything larger than a Trainer aircraft. There would be news on it like a sore thumb if it was anything larger, because the ATC would notice an Airbus or Boeing go off radar.

I hope the pilot(s) get out ok.

Thanks
Mike

The story has been updated on the Sky News website, link same as opening thread;

quote "A Sea King helicopter and lifeboats have been scrambled in a rescue operation.

A pilot flying over the spot earlier today saw a stricken aircraft on the surface of the water.

When he returned for a second pass he could see no sign of it, or of any life rafts or debris.

However, he put out a "mayday" call and a rescue operation is now underway.

Michael Mulford, of RAF Search and Rescue, told Sky News: "There's always the possibility of an innocent explanation.

"At the moment it's very much a question of get a helicopter there, get some lifeboats there and see if there's anything there."

He added there were no reports of any aircraft missing, but traffic was now being monitored.

Ships in the area are also being asked to look out for any sign of an aircraft."

I believe one of the tails of a F-14 Tomcat (crashed @ West Palm Beach last year) washed ashore

Yep, just read on bbc that quote: "It is believed the pilot may have seen a low-flying photographic plane.

Dover Coastguard said a light aircraft belonging to Photoflite, a company specialising in aerial photography based at London Ashford Airport, in Lydd, had been in the area at the time."

Good news that this was a false alarm and there hasn't been an accident.

Safe flying  Wink
