This is the shocking moment a light aircraft crash lands and flips over as the pilot attempts to set it down on a lakeside road.
The footage, captured in Norheimsund, Norway, shows the small plane approaching the road from across a lake.
All seems well as it descends, but just as the plane reaches the edge of the road, it catches on the ground below and tumbles into a crash landing.

The small plane hits the ground with its right wheel and twists to the side, momentarily perching on its wing.
It then falls forward and twists on its nose before coming to a halt with its back end in the air.
A cyclist is then seen cautiously passing by the plane – just yards from the crash site.
A 61-year-old pilot was reportedly in the plane when it crashed, but he is said to have only suffered minor injuries.
