Plane crash victims walk away
With a full medical team on board RACQ CareFlight Rescue flew to the aid of three Brisbane men involved in a single-engine plane crash in Caloundra this afternoon.
The Beechcraft they were flying in experienced engine trouble shortly after take-off from Caloundra Airport.
"The pilot told us the aircraft lost power and he had to perform an emergency landing," RACQ CareFlight Rescue Air Crewman Rick Harvey said.
The plane was brought down in a paddock about three kilometres from the airport. The pilot and his two passengers all walked away from the crash.
"The pilot's done a really good job getting the aircraft down safely," Mr Harvey said.
"They all walked away from the crash. One of the passengers had a bruised knee but the other passenger and pilot weren't injured at all."
With the three men assessed as having only minor injuries, their care was handed over to road ambulance crews before RACQ CareFlight was cleared to leave the scene.
