A small plane crushed near Grevena, northern Greece, on Thursday, as it attempted an emergency landing due to engine failure.
The pilot was slightly injured but the two passengers were unhurt.
The single engine Cessna had taken off from Corfu and was heading to Thessaloniki.
“We lost the engine on air and we made an emergency landing,” the pilot said a few minutes after exiting the aircraft. He was transferred to a local hospital as a precaution.
Video footage of the crash showed the smashed plane at the side of the road, covered in foam to prevent a fire.
Fire fighters were on the scene to limit the fuel leakage.
