The crash happened at 2:45pm on Wednesday. The two men on board the aircraft were taken to Leuven University Hospital.
The Landen Fire Service extinguished the burning plane. Two lanes of the E40 have been closed while debris is cleared. Although the high speed rail link between Leuven (Flemish Brabant) and Liège is next to the where the plane came down, the company that maintains and manages Belgium’s rail infrastructure Infrabel says that rail services have not been impacted.
