In the air crash, an old Fokker S.11 plane, used in the past to train pilots for the Dutch Navy and Royal Dutch Air Force, landed upside down in a meadow and the two climbed out of the plane. Omrop Gelderland reported that he suffered visible injuries.
Local media reported that the Defense Ministry first used the plane three years ago after years of restoration.
