AMERICA: A trucker got a fright when a plane landed on the back of his lorry as he drove along a main road. Amateur pilot Howard Hammer, 63, had just taken off when his home-made machine lost power, forcing him to make an emergency landing. But as the pilot descended on to the road near Chiloquin, Oregon, a lorry pulled out and ended up with the aircraft parked on its back. The aircraft was badly damaged but nobody was hurt.
