A pilot, four skydivers and the two occupants of the home have all survived after a small plane landed on a house in Phoenix, Arizona.

Fire officials in the US suburb of Gilbert say the people in the plane were all able to eject before the aircraft crashed onto a house.

There were two people inside the home; neither of them were injured.

The pilot was taken to hospital to be treated for burns say police. None of the skydivers were hurt.

It’s thought the plane was carrying skydivers for the Constitution Fair, a yearly event which celebrates the United States Constitution, on which the American system of government is based.

“Attendees can marvel at military aircraft displays, a bi-plane flyover, skydivers, American history galleries and an exhibit honouring Arizona’s fallen soldiers
