Search resumes for man lost in Guernsey plane crash

French coastguards, assisted by the Royal Navy, are continuing to search for a man who is missing after his small plane crashed into the Channel near Guernsey. The man’s wife was found and rescued, but the man himself – who has not been named – has not been seen since the plane went down on Saturday afternoon.

The private plane was carrying the two people from Britain to Alderney when it ditched in the sea just short of its destination. Russian merchant ship the Jork Rider quickly found the woman, who was taken to a hospital in Cherbourg.

Lifeboats from Guernsey, Alderney and Cap de la Hague have joined French coastguard helicopters, a team from Channel Islands Air Search, and Royal Navy offshore patrol vessel HMS Tyne, were all involved in the search last night. HMS Tyne’s night vision capabilities were used. A wheel from the plane is believed to have been found so far.
