A student pilot’s terrible mistake caused a plane crash that killed a flight instructor.

Viktoria Ljungman’s hopes of becoming a pilot were tragically cut short soon after takeoff.

A small plane crashed in the US, killing a young flight instructor who wanted to be a commercial airline pilot.

Viktoria Theresie Izabelle Ljungman, 23, from the US state of Virginia, was in the single-engine Cessna 172 with two students when it crashed last Thursday shortly after taking off from Newport News-Williamsburg Airport.

Virginia state police said that 18-year-old Oluwagbohunmi Ayomide Oyebode, who was one of her students, was flying the plane.

Oyebode tried to pull the plane up at too steep of an angle when it was time to take off.

That made the engine stop while the plane was in the air, and the plane went down.

It had reached about 30m in height.

Not long after it took off, the plane went down.

Oyebode, who is from the US state of Maryland, was hurt badly and taken to a hospital.

A male student who was 18 and on the bus was also taken to a hospital.

The Daily Press said that Ljungman, who was Swedish, had graduated from Hampton University.

According to her Instagram account, which showed her journey to becoming an airline pilot, she taught at Rick Aviation after getting her commercial pilot license in March 2021 and becoming a certified flight instructor in April 2022.

The family of Ljungman said they were “devastated by this huge loss.”

In April, Viktoria got her license to teach people how to fly.

WTVR read a statement from her family that said, “To know Viktoria was to love her, and not just for her family.”

“Everyone who knew Viktoria admired her kindness and intelligence, and they admired how hard she worked and how dedicated she was.

Charlie Hudson, who went to college with Ljungman and met her there, said that she was a “pure soul.”

Hudson told the Daily Press, “I don’t remember ever seeing her without a smile.”

“She was so full of life that it was hard not to be around her.

Friends remembered the 23-year-old as a “beautiful and talented” person in other posts on her Instagram page.

“The nicest person I met at Hampton,” wrote one person.

“I wish you peace and light on your next journey. “Keep going,” someone else said.
