Pair survive light plane crash


Two men have walked away from a light plane crash near Sale in eastern Victoria.


The pilot and his passenger were flying a Terrier 200L to Bairnsdale about 3:00pm AEST when the plane's redrive belt snapped and the propeller failed.


The pilot steered over power lines to land the plane in a farm off Clydebank Road, north of Sale.


The plane's engine cover has been ripped off and it is leaking fuel from one of its wings.


A 10-year-old girl alerted authorities to the crash.


"The person who lives down the road told dad the plane had crashed and then he told me to ring 000," she said.


Emergency services are at the scene and police are interviewing the pilot.


Police say the men have had a lucky escape.
