Circumstances:
The crew was supposed to land at Cherbourg-Maupertus Airport but was unable to locate the airfield due to a limited visibility caused by foggy conditions. Low fuel reserve forced the crew to attempt an emergency landing on a beach in Cherbourg. While both occupants were unhurt, the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
