Men's 'lucky escape' from Dorset light aircraft crash

  • 5-18-2011

Two crew members were "lucky" to escape a plane crash near a Dorset golf course that "could have been fatal", a witness has said.

The twin-engine aircraft performed an emergency landing near Dudsbury Golf Course, Hurn, at about 1230 BST, narrowly clearing a hill.

Both men walked from the aircraft and signalled they were unhurt to onlookers.

Dorset police, fire and rescue services and an ambulance attended the scene.

At the height of the incident Dorset Fire and Rescue Service had about 30 firefighters on the scene.

They used foam to prevent any fuel igniting.

Both men were taken to hospital by ambulance.
