Two Grumman G-164 Ag Cat planes apparently both force-landed and flipped upside down on a beach in St. Pierre-la-Mer, near Narbonne. Both pilots were not injured.

The planes, mandated by the Interdepartmental Agreement on Mosquito Abatement (EID), took off this Friday morning from Candillargues, in the Hérault region. But due to the lack of visibility, the two pilots decided to land in emergency on the beach of Saint-Pierre-la Mer, in the Aude. The ground being very loose, the two planes turned over.
