Berlin - The pilot of a Goodyear blimp screamed "I crashed the airship" before it burst into flames, a passenger who leapt to safety says.

Photographer Joachim Storch told media that the blimp - The Spirit of Safety - missed its designated landing spot at Reichelsheim airfield in central Germany on Sunday evening, causing its engine to slam into the ground.

The pilot yelled "We had an accident!" followed by "I crashed the airship!" as the smell of fire crept through the blimp, Storch told the DAPD news agency on Monday.

Storch and two other passengers, a man and woman from a TV crew, leapt 2m to safety.

The sudden loss of weight caused the ship to shoot into the air, where it burst into flames, killing the pilot who remained in the cabin.

Germany's aviation investigator said on Tuesday it will need weeks to complete an investigation into the cause of the crash.

Yeah, I was just reading about this. Poor guy saved the other 3, he knew it would blast up so he told them to jump down.

Your right rabenson, I saw that about the B-17 last night. I saw that plane a few years ago when it was touring the US. Here are a few pic's from it's last flight.

Seven crew members and volunteers walked away without serious injury after a World War II "Flying Fortress" bomber burned in a cornfield southeast of Aurora Municipal Airport on Monday, June 13, officials say. The B-17, christened the "Liberty Belle," took off from the airport at 9:30 a.m. and made an emergency landing in a cornfield near Highway 71 and Minkler Road in Oswego after the pilot reported an engine fire, according to Sugar Grove Fire Chief Marty Kunkle.
