Wrong place shown – plane crashed two meters into the aircraft hangar


An alleged plane crash briefly led to a larger operation near Pettenbach on Sunday afternoon. Now it is also clear what is behind the whole story. And the resolution is rather bizarre.

The fire brigade, rescue service, ambulance doctor helicopter, police and police helicopter were alerted to a reported plane crash near a gravel pit in Pettenbach. The emergency services began to search both from the ground and from the air for the alleged crash site by the two alerted helicopters.

Sensor was activated
But there was nothing to be found. As it turned out: the alarm was triggered by the crash sensor of a glider that had crashed into the hangar at Scharnstein Airport – from a height of only two meters where it hung. The suspension had apparently succumbed.

Why the alarm came from the gravel pit about four miles away remains a mystery. “Austro-Control warned us and called us back,” reports Günter Dirnberger of FF Steinfelden. So false alarm. The mission was canceled after the strange facts were confirmed.
