Pilot's quick-thinking averts disaster as hot air balloon lands in backyard Passengers on board a hot air balloon forced to make an emergency landing in a Melbourne backyard have praised the pilot for his swift and calm thinking. The flight came down at the back of a Glen Iris home this morning after light and variable winds made an oval landing impossible. All ten passengers board escaped without serious injury after the balloon was steered clear of powerlines and set down in the Faircroft Avenue yard, which is roughly ten metres by five metres. © 9News The hot air balloon landed in a Glen Iris back yard this morning. © 9News Emergency services were called but all on board escaped injury.

Two men have walked away with only minor injuries after their plane crashed on a golf course in Melbourne's south.

Moorabbin Airport received a call just after 3pm that a light aircraft had been forced to land in the Capital Golf Course, which sits alongside the airport.

The plane can be seen caught in shrubbery and trees which line a small hill separating the golf course from Centre Dandenong Road.

Emergency services had to attend the scene using golf buggies, but both men walked away from the plane without serious injuries.

The pilot, a 55-year-old Moorabbin man, and passenger, a 47-year-old man from Tarneit, are being assessed by paramedics at the scene.

Police say the exact cause of the crash landing has yet to be established and an investigation will be referred to the Australian Transport Safety Bureau.

The Civil Aviation Safety Authority has also been informed.
