A small airplane crushed near Grevena, northern Greece, on Thursday 18th July, 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 in air and we made an emergency landing,” the pilot explained a few minutes after exiting the aircraft. He was transferred to a local hospital.
Video footage of the crash showed the plane lying upside-down in a crumpled mass at the side of the road, covered in foam to prevent a fire..

Fire fighters were on the scene to limit any possible fuel leakage.
