Due to fuel shortage this plane had to make an emergency landing on a motorway near Essen in Germany.

Jepp, three people onboard, all survived - but injured. in total, 5 injured people. weired story, as I know the area very well... there are a lot better options than the autobahn!

Unfortunately the plane was from the school I made my liceneses in and I flew that Seneca three weeks ago on a private flight. To Berlin, just as these guys did...
