    Be careful near airport

    Pilot, Porsche driver unhurt after plane lands on speeding car

    A German pilot and driver escaped unhurt when a one-seater plane landed on top of a speeding car at a little-used airport, police in the western town of Bitburg said.

    "It was a miracle that no one was hurt - there was considerable damage done to the plane and the car," Bitburg police spokesman Klaus Schnarrbach said.

    The driver was racing at 160 kilometres per hour with 11 other members of a local Porsche club at the airport, a former US air base, when the single-engine plane accidentally landed on his roof.

    The shocked driver slammed on the brakes, sending the plane crashing to the ground.

    "The airplane managed to stay steady on the roof at first," Mr Schnarrbach said, adding the pilot faced possible charges of negligence.

    "They probably couldn't have done it that well if they had tried," he said.

    How do you want to see a plane approaching just above you? Unless the sunroof is opened...

    In fact - for anybody who reads German - here is a aviation forum about it:

    http://www.flugzeugforum.de/forum/showth...age=2&pp=10

    In fact it was a replica of a WW-2 plane, the 80%-sized model of a Mf109.

    The pilot commented that he even contacted the tower and received permission to land. In fact the airport would have had to be signalled by two big white crosses which tell the pilot that the airport is out of duty. It is said that this was NOT the case. So this might go to court...

    Re: Be careful near airport

    Bitburg isn't big. It's one runway with one taxiway so I don't have a clue into how the pilot could not see a group of cars on the flightline. For the most part the runway is retricted to cars because of aviation traffic.
