FIVE people have narrowly avoided serious injuries after the plane they were travelling in crash landed.

Noone was hurt in the landing with all passengers able to exit the plane by themselves.

The Roma airport was shut down while emergency services responded to the crash.

Roma is about 430km inland from Brisbane.
