Two pilots from Bavaria collided during a joint flight with their light aircraft in Austria.

The four occupants survived the crash of their machines in Upper Austria unharmed, the police said.

One of the pilots (62) flew with his son (25) in Altötting.

The other (61) took off with a passenger (74) in Eggenfelden.

After crossing the German-Austrian border, they continued on their route to Hungary together.

However, the planes collided near Reichraming for reasons that are still unclear.

Both pilots deployed the aircraft's emergency parachutes at an altitude of about 1,000 meters to slow the crash.

The planes crashed into a forest and became wedged between trees.

Emergency services had to abseil two of the men from a height of ten to 15 meters.
