Three dead as plane crashes into group in Germany

A small plane has crashed in the central Germany, killing three people.

 

The single-engine Cessna hit a group of people clustered by an airfield on Wasserkuppe mountain near the town of Fulda in Hesse state on Sunday.

 

The plane was reportedly trying to gain height after a failed landing and crashed through an airport fence at about 15:45 (13:45 GMT).

 

Police say two adults and a child were killed in the crash, and eight more were injured.

 

The weather was reportedly fair at the time, and the cause of the crash is not yet known. Emergency services are at the scene.

 

Wasserkuppe mountain is the highest peak in the Rhön Mountains and is popular among fliers of light aircraft and gliders.
