Plane Crashes into Bloggers.

I can't believe I am reading this. Mike Stopforth witnessed one of the most bizarre, frightening, freakish things you will ever see. He saw a single propeller plane crash head-on into a bakkie . Mike watched this happen from about 20 meters away. I am glad they are all alive.

The one-in-a-million accident occurred at about 2pm yesterday, near Krugersdorp Airport, west of Johannesburg. Read Mikes account of the plane crash here.

The pilot and his passenger, both in their fifties, suffered minor injuries. Two women in the bakkie were unharmed but were treated for shock. Another passenger, sitting on the back of the bakkie was thrown off the back but was not injured. Amazing, it's certainly is a miracle for me that no one was killed.

The Civil Aviation Authority is investigating the accident but it is believed a botched take-off caused the crash.

Yeah, one day telling your grand kids: "I remember a day, when I was in a plane crash and survived."
