It looks like an excellent result.
Well done all involved.

It is indeed - glad to see it all worked out ok, top notch organisation and instructors. They even managed to get the aircraft lifted off the beach before the tide came in. A saved airframe and so glad no injuries.

Looks like it was very close to the airfield. May have been a good call not to try and make it back.

Yes, but you noticed he was inbound? Good job done, nobody hurt, aircraft can be re used. That pilot can fly my family any time.
