Plane Crash In Roermond-NL Killed Pilot (76).

Tue Apr 03, 2007 8:17 pm

In the city of Roermond (the Netherlands) a German registered light propellor plane crashed yesterday (Monday April 2) evening in a residential area after it made some 'airshow'-like mouvres. The plane, which took off from a nearby German airfield, hit a tree before it crashed on a small spot of grass into a garden fence near a house. The 76 year old German pilot was killed at impact. The plane attracted many people outside to see it and among them many were traumatized by seeing the crash. A news flash from the Dutch TV can be spotted via this link Find for "Reportages NOS Journal" and choose for "Een dode bij vliegtuigcrash Roermond". The authorities do not have a clue why the plane was flying there and why it made arobatics above a residential area, which is strictly forbidden to do so. According the video it looks as if it is a glider plane with propeller support.
