An astonished pilot walked away from this terrifying nose dive when his engine cut out during a test flight, say air accident investigators.

Pilot Krzystof Kwiatkowskihad been on his landing approach at Czestochowa Aero Club in Poland when he lost all power and fell out of the sky.

"He just dropped like a stone and hit the ground with a real crunch," said one eyewitness.

"Everyone thought the pilot was dead and then his door swung open and out he climbed without a mark on him," he added.

Club director Jacek Bogatko explained: "His engine lost too many revs and simply stalled."
