Two people have had a lucky escape after a light plane crashed in Traralgon on Thursday afternoon.
The plane came down in a paddock next to the Princes Highway and the Latrobe Regional Airport about 1.25pm.
Paramedics assessed a man and woman who weren't injured, but were shaken by the crash.
A spokesman for the Australian Transport Safety Bureau said staff were informed of the crash about 2pm.
"It was a forced landing in a paddock about one kilometre short of the aerodrome at Traralgon," he said.
The crash comes two days after five people were killed when a light Beechcraft King Air plane crashed in Melbourne.
That plane had taken off from Essendon airport before it crashed into the nearby Direct Factory Outlet.
The pilot and four American passengers, who were heading to King Island to play golf, died on impact.
