Plane makes emergency landing at Cedar Point beach

Pilot makes emergency landing on Lake Erie beach alongside Cedar Point amusement park

SANDUSKY — Authorities say a pilot made an emergency landing on a beach that runs alongside Cedar Point amusement park in northern Ohio.

Troopers tell The Sandusky Register that the single-engine plane landed on the Lake Erie beach not far from the park’s 200-foot tall Magnum roller coaster.

The State Highway Patrol says the plane hit a duck Tuesday afternoon, cracking the plane’s windshield and forcing the pilot to bring it down.

The pilot wasn’t injured, and the plane didn’t sustain any other damage.
