Passengers capture Idaho plane crash on film


Passengers have captured the moment the small plane they were travelling in crashed in Idaho.

The group was heading back to the mountain resort town of McCall after a day's hiking, when the plane suddenly lost altitude.

It is seen skimming trees, before hitting the ground.

The pilot, 70-year-old Les Gropp, suffered a broken jaw and ribs and a fractured cheekbone, however the other three men on board escaped with cuts and bruises.
