Narrow escape as pilot walks away after aircraft nose dives
A PILOT has miraculously escaped injury after a plane crashed and ended up being stuck vertical in a field.
The plane nose dived into a field in North East Somerset and crashed with its propeller buried in the ground.
It happened on Friday and, unbelievably, the pilot was able to walk away from the wreckage after crashing head first into the field.
A photograph of the grounded plane was taken by the Bradford on Avon fire service.
It shows the red propeller plane stuck almost completely vertical - with its tail in the air - in a field.
In a tweet, the fire service said: “Mobilised to an upside down aircraft. Luckily the pilot managed to self rescue and was up walking about on arrival.
“Multiple crews from Dorset and Wiltshire and Somerset were mobilised after a light aircraft crash-landed on its roof near Norton St Philip just after 1pm.”
