Austrian Airlines Fokker F-70 plane crash
The aircraft was on a scheduled passenger flight from Vienna (Austria) to Munich (Germany).
The crew was completing the descent phase when the Captain reported, at 12,000 feet, that a substantial loss of power had occurred in both engines.
An emergency landing was attempted on Munich's runway 26R, but the aircraft was unable to reach the airport and the Captain elected to attempt to land in a field approximately 3 miles (5 kilometers) from the runway. The Fokker's landing gear collapsed, and the aircraft skidded about 500 meters to a stop. There is no fatality, but several occupants sustained minor injuries.
