A biplane crash-landed in a field in the grounds of the chateau of Versailles on Sunday, slightly injuring two passengers, police sources said.

The tourist plane suffered a mechanical problem just after taking off from the Saint-Cyr-l'Ecole aerodrome close to the Versailles estate, west of Paris, a police source said, adding that the field belonged to the chateau but was not in an area open to the public.

Two people in the plane suffered slight injuries and the aircraft was badly damaged, the source added.
