A light plane has conducted a dramatic emergency landing on Collaroy Beach. 

Listener Mike told Deborah Knight he and his friend witnessed the plane land on the beachfront near Narrabeen.

“This plane just floats past us really close and really low, losing altitude really fast,” he said.

“He ended up being around 800 metres away from where I was standing.”

NSW Ambulance has confirmed the two occupants were uninjured in the landing.

“It’s been really fortunate today … they’re really lucky.”
