A pilot was forced to make an emergency landing on Miami Beach on Tuesday - just a couple of days after a father and his daughter were killed by another plane that crash-landed on a beach in Florida.
This time, however, nobody was injured.
Pilot Jafet Cordero said he'd experienced a problem with the plane's engine, but was not sure exactly what.
According to the Daily Mail, he said: "I was trying to find the safest place. I didn't want to keep going and find out that something bad would happen. I saw an empty spot on the beach and so I cut power, and I made sure I wanted to land in this area."
He was carrying three passengers from Vero Beach to Tamiami Airport when the incident occurred at 12.30pm on Tuesday.
His passengers said they had not even realised there was an emergency.
One passenger, Martha Baptiste, said: "I just thank God with this pilot that we are safe. I didn't know something was happening."
There were dozens of people on the beach at the time. Witness Alejandro Mena told CBS Local: "The plane was going down and it seemed to stop functioning and then over there it turned. It was pretty scary. I thought it might hit somebody."
Other witnesses said the pilot "deserves a medal" and described his actions as "incredible".
Miami Beach Police Detective Vivian Thayer told CBS Local: "It's a blessing this pilot had such a safe landing, particularly in light of the tragedies over the weekend. To have someone land on the each is a huge concern here. When you hear about in on the radio, your first concern is how many injuries are there.
"Fortunately, there were no injuries on the plane or on the beach."
The Federal Aviation Administration are investigating.
The FAA is already ask investigating after another small plane crashed onto a Florida beach on Sunday, killing a 36-year-old man and his nine-year-old daughter who were taking a stroll.
Ommy Irizarry died at the scene, and his daughter Oceana Irizarry was critically injured and died from her injuries later in hospital.
The pilot of the Piper Cherokee, Karl Kokomoor, radioed to say he could not make it back to the Venice Municipal Airport and was going to attempt to land on Caspersen Beach.
He said he was losing altitude fast and aimed for an area on the water's edge that seemed to be remote.
According to CNN, Kokomoor, who, along with his passenger, was uninjured, said: "I never saw them. It was only after I landed and we exited the plane that I realised that there were people on the beach.
"Words cannot express the sorrow I feel."
15 flights from hell
Plane crash-lands on Miami Beach
We've heard of vomiting bugs in hotels and cruises but rarely on a plane. On a flight from Chile to Sydney in August 2013, 26 passengers became violently ill with gastroenteritis after celebrating at a festival in Brazil and picking up the bug before boarding the plane. Some of the passengers were taken to hospital once the plane landed in Sydney and the plane had to be quarantined and disinfected upon arrival. This is one flight we're really glad we weren't on as the Boeing 747-400 only had eight toilets and the group developed vomiting and diarrhoea.
When you're on a long (and pricey) trans-Atlantic flight, the one thing you don't want to happen is for the plane to run out of toilet paper. Unlucky for passengers on a United Airlines flight from London to San Francisco in June 2013, the toilets ran low on tissue after the airline forgot to restock its supply. The passengers were forced to use cocktail napkins instead of loo paper when nature called and were allegedly told to use what they had brought on board for the 10-hour flight. That's one way for an airline to find itself deep in poo!
We all hate flight delays and even a few hours can leave us peeved, but holidaymakers on a Monarch Airlines plane from Tenerife were stranded on the Canary Island for a whopping 50 hours in August 2012 when their plane suffered a fault. The crew discovered a problem with the door hatch and asked passengers to get off the plane and wait for three hours. They then spent another hour on the plane before being put up in a hotel. A replacement plane eventually flew them to Birmingham.
When a pilot accidentally locked himself in the toilet of a New York-bound flight in 2011, he ended up causing a mid-air 'terror' panic too. When a well-meaning passenger heard the pilot trying to get out of the loo, he offered to help. The pilot asked the man to go to the cockpit and inform the crew of the situation, but the co-pilot was completed spooked by the man's "thick Middle Eastern" accent and refused to let him in, calling a state of emergency. Fighter planes were alerted at the arrival airport and the co-pilot was told to "just get on the ground". When he managed to break out of the toilet the pilot assured air traffic control that there was no threat. But the FBI still waited to meet the plane when it landed and spoke to the poor passenger who just wanted to help.
If you're a non-smoker, you won't be able to think of anything worse than a smoker lighting up a cigarette next to you on a flight. Three Canadian passengers on a Sunwing flight did just that in February 2013 - even though smoking has been banned on aircrafts for more than 15 years. And what's more, they refused to put their cigarettes out and ended up diverting the flight, which was travelling from Halifax to the Dominican Republic, to Bermuda. When the plane landed, their passports were seized by police, while the other passengers continued their journey.
There are times when the pilots are up against nature and have absolutely no control over a situation, such as when lightning strikes. In January 2013, a Turkish Airlines flight carrying 114 passengers was struck by lightning. A passenger filmed the incident, which saw sparks from the plane's engine as it caught fire and the cabin lights flickering on and off. Fortunately, despite the plane catching fire mid-air, it made a safe emergency landing and no-one was injured.
One emergency landing is enough but could you handle two on one flight? That's what "terrified" passengers on a British Airways flight from Saudi Arabia to London endured in August 2013. First the plane was delayed for five hours and in the air for about 40 minutes before making an emergency landing because of a problem with the plane's wing flaps. Then the next day when the passengers boarded the same plane, the problem reoccurred and the flight was aborted a second time. Passengers were reportedly "physically sick and crying" during the landings as the plane had to circle the desert to dump around 20 tonnes of fuel to be the correct weight to land safely.
If the sound of babies crying on a flight is disruptive enough to your journey, you certainly wouldn't have enjoyed the American Airlines flight from Los Angeles to New York, which saw an "unruly" passenger repeatedly sing Whitney Houston's I Will Always Love You. We've watched the video and the woman is no Whitney Houston! She ended up being handcuffed and removed from the flight - but not before putting the other passengers off Whitney's music for life!
Thought a naughty child kicking your chair was bad? In August 2013, 30 adults created the flight from hell when they ran riot on a Ryanair flight from Prestwick to Ibiza, swearing, threatening and even sexually harassing crew in front of other holidaymakers, including families with young children. The men were warned by police about their behaviour before boarding but this didn't stop their drunken rampage, which saw them shouting and jumping on the seats too.
