At an airfield in Baden-Wuerttemberg hard it has been a disaster with a double-decker. This was launched on Saturday from the airport Backnang-Heiningen. Amateur footage. Cause may have been a technical defect.


Good thing he was only slightly injured.

Brett, that´s right.

It is always dangerous at minimum speed to actuate the ailerons. Emergency landing at low altitude always straight!. The maneuvering speed is too low. Maybe he did not want to endanger other spectators, and therefore a reverse curve in thought, or a normal pattern with engine failure (sounds) at right departure base leg. But to speculate would be wrong.
