Thursday 9th March: The ALB launched at 1754 to reports of a Microlight aircraft that had crashed into the water, off Rudders Boatyard, Burton.
Also responding to this incident was a local Range Safety vessel, Dyfed Powys Police, Ambulance, Coastguard Rescue Officers and two leisure craft. Whilst arriving on scene, we were informed that the single occupant had swum to the shore adjacent to Burton and transferred to Rudders Boatyard by a local RIB.
The Y Boat was launched and two crew went ashore to gather more information whilst the paramedics were assessing the casualty. As no assistance was needed ashore, the Y Boat searched the shoreline whilst the ALB searched the main channel for any debris. With no sightings, the Y Boat was recovered and the ALB returned to station at 1920.
