Volunteer Rescue Officers from Flint Coastguard were scrambled to reports a light aircraft had lost power to both engines this afternoon.

A twin-engined Partenavia P68B had taken off from Liverpool John Lennon Airport at around 12.30pm today – Saturday, July 6.

During the flight, the pilot reset the plane’s transponder to ‘squawk 7700’ alerting ground controllers to an emergency onboard the aircraft.

As we were about to depart the station, Holyhead Coastguard Operations Centre updated us to say the aircraft had landed safely.
