Klemm KL25, D-EFTE: Historic aircraft crashes in Germany, two injured

One of Germany’s oldest planes crashed in a field on Sunday evening, severely injuring the pilot and passenger.

The wooden Klemm KL25, which is almost 90 years old, belonged to a flying club in Großenhain, Saxony, which has a private collection of historical planes.

“It was one of the oldest licensed planes in Germany, but not the oldest," a member of the society said on Monday.

The 27-year-old pilot, who is a club member, and a 16-year-old passenger were taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said.
