Nar­row es­cape as pi­lot walks away after air­craft nose dives

Western Daily Press - - News -

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.”
