After being forced to use a parachute to land, a light aircraft’s crew and passengers made a fortunate escape in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
In the southern Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, a light propeller plane was seen by observers floating to Earth close to hills covered in vegetation, but it was saved by a mechanism known as the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System.

The four adult crew members and two youngsters, one of whom was three days old, were discovered by fire department personnel who arrived on the scene first. The crash, which was caused by engine failure, had left the four adult crew members stunned but unharmed.
It is not the first time a Cirrus aircraft has been salvaged using the parachute system, which is primarily intended to save the crew but does not always shield the aircraft from damage during a crash.

Another Cirrus plane in Brazil encountered engine issues last month, forcing the pilot to use a parachute to save the passengers. Also, each aircraft is equipped with an emergency side door in case the main doors become jammed following a crash landing.
Three crew members were saved in 2014 when a Cirrus parachute was deployed above Australia’s Blue Mountains. The plane dropped more than a kilometer before landing in a yard.
A seven-seater jet aircraft owned by the corporation, the Vision Jet SF50, was involved in a successful parachute landing in a swampy region last year after encountering extreme turbulence close to Kissimmee Gateway Airport in Orlando, Florida. All three of the travelers were unharmed.
