"I can see they're very low, looks like they're heading towards the beach," the pilot of the nearby plane can be heard saying.

"Yep that's what they've just advised, can you just monitor or stay overhead them and just advise if you see any passengers get out," the control tower operator replies.

"Just to let you know they've just ditched into the water. I saw them ditch in the water, about 10m from the beach," the pilot interjects.

Experts say the pilot would've had only 30 seconds between recognising the engine was failing and landing the plane.

"The chances of engine failure in a single engine aircraft with that kind of engine are about 13 per 100,000 flying hours, so it's not that common but it does happen," aviation expert Tim Collins said.
