A World War II aircraft crashed in dramatic fashion at an airshow in France on Sunday, nosediving and flipping after its propeller hit the ground. Those in attendance rushed to the Spitfire in an attempt to pull the pilot from the wreckage.

The show at the L'aerodrome de Longuyon in Villette, northern France, came to an end following the crash, as rescue services and spectators attempted to bring the pilot to safety.

The pilot escaped unharmed, while a member of the audience suffered a minor injury from debris that was fired into the crowd, reported The Aviationist.
