Odd Chain Of Events In MN Seaplane Incident

All's Well After C180 Loses Power

ANN REALTIME UPDATE 10.30.06 1600 EST: We're learning more of the circumstances behind an incident this weekend involving a Cessna 180 Skywagon seaplane in Minnesota.

The Minneapolis St. Paul Star Tribune reports the aircraft (similar to type shown above) lost altitude over Forest Lake Saturday... and landed hard. So hard, in fact, that two passengers onboard the plane were thrown into the water.

The two women -- one 35 years old, the other, 47 -- were rescued, and taken to an area hospital. The Washington County Sheriff's Office reports they are both being treated for injuries not believed to be life-threatening.

As for the Skywagon... the harsh landing caused the plane to lose its floats, but the pilot was able to recover. The 44-year-old pilot was later able to land the stricken plane safely on a nearby grass landing strip. Neither the pilot nor another passenger onboard were injured.

The FAA is investigating.
