Two people in miracle survival after plane crash on outskirts of Perth in Hopeland
Two people injured in a light plane crash on the outskirts of Perth are being treated in hospital.
Emergency services were called to the scene of the crash in Hopeland, an outer suburb in the Shire of Serpentine-Jarrahdale, at 9.30am.
The plane came down near Yangedi Road, which runs past the Serpentine Airfield.
Two people — a 78-year-old man and a 65-year-old woman — were taken by ambulance to Royal Perth Hospital.
Both are reported to be in a stable condition.
Firefighters and police emergency crews could be seen from the road behind the thick grass near the airfield, which is operated by the Sport Aircraft Builders Club of WA.
It is not clear if the plane’s passengers are members of the club.
The small white ultralight plane, with blue and red stripes, appeared to be mostly intact.
St John Ambulance said they were notified of the incident at 9.29am.
The Department of Fire and Emergency Services said the RAC Rescue helicopter was on the scene.
Police are still blocking the entrance to the site.
Since the crash, at least three small aircraft have landed on a strip next to the crash site.
The Sport Aircraft Builders Club of WA is about a five minute drive east of Kwinana Freeway near Baldivis and is surrounded by dry paddocks and bushland.
