One point landing…upside down

Link to The Local

Emergency workers rescued two people from a small plane that became stuck in power lines while trying to land in Bavaria on Sunday.

The married couple was trapped in the single-engine plane for over two hours in the dangerous 380,000-volt electricity lines 18 metres off the ground close to the Durach airstrip near Kempten.

Suspended upside down and strapped in with their seatbelts, they had to wait for the fire brigade to secure the aircraft with two mobile cranes. According to police, the couple came through the dramatic episode in relatively good shape, but they were taken to a local hospital for observation.
