    US plane crash lands on toilets

    A pilot in the US managed to avoid injury when his plane dropped from the sky after its fall was cushioned by a row of portable toilets. The Cessna 182 plane had taken off from Thun Field airfield in Pierce County before the engine apparently failed.
    As it fell, the plane hit a fence, flipped upside down and landed on toilets being stored near the runway by the Northwest Cascade company.

    A company employee said the toilets had "kind of cushioned things".

    Ed Troyer, a spokesman for the county sheriff, told the News Tribune newspaper that the pilot had reached an altitude of about 150ft (46m) when the engine "quit running".

    "He tried to turn around and come back and land, but he didn't quite make it," said Mr Troyer.

    The 67-year-old pilot, who was reported to have been flying alone, has not been identified.
