What started as an average day at Hampton Beach in New Hampshire turned into a moment of chaos. The videos below, which were submitted to WMUR by Bryan Fisher and Nicol Lally, show the messy scenes, as many beachgoers stared at a plane crash.

The situation happened around noon on Saturday. Due to engine issues, the plane attempted to land in the ocean water. When it touched the water, the plane flipped over. After the nose met the water, the plane flipped over again to an upright position.

The pilot, who was the only person on the plane, was rescued by the lifeguards. The plane has been identified as a Piper PA-18-150, which is a fixed-wing, banner-carrying aircraft. The plane is registered to the co-owner of Sky Lines Aerial Ads, LLC, which frequently flies over the beach.

The plane was eventually brought back to shore and carried away by lifeguards. In retrospect, it was better for them to crash at that point of the day, as later on, heavy rain swept through the state. Just another quiet day in the 603.
