Plane crash lands in Traralgon paddock

A two-seater plane has landed in a Traralgon paddock this morning (13 August) after its engine stopped.


CFA was called to an aircraft accident in Coonoc Rd, Traralgon, at 8.27am.

Morwell Fire Station Officer in Charge Commander Chris Loeschenkohl said a two-seater plane, departing La Trobe Valley Airport for New Zeeland, experienced engine problems.

"The pilot glided in and managed to land in a paddock and had actually got out of the plane by the time we got there," he said.

The plane clipped some power lines on the way down, which are being attended to by the power company.

CFA crews are on scene monitoring a gas spill.

Victoria Police, Ambulance Victoria and SES are also at the scene.
