Small aircraft in difficulty was actually model airplane that went on fire

More than two dozen people took part in a search last night after a small aircraft was reported to be in difficulty in Waterford.

The search operation took place in the Comeragh Mountains, near Rathcormack from 8.45pm.

South East Mountain Rescue had received a report "of a what looked like a paraglider/light aircraft going down in the Lough Morha area".

Upon further investigation, the rescue team believed it was, in fact, a model airplane in flight.

The model went on fire and crashed. Nobody was injured.

The search was also assisted by the Coast Guard helicopter Rescue 117.
