The militant action failed to turn to the drama, on the lawn of the Allianz Arena in Munich, just before the kick-off of France-Germany.
An activist from the environmental association Greenpeace, arrived above the stadium in a microlight type machine, almost crashed into the stand when this Group F Euro match was about to begin.
The pilot flew over the lawn with "Kick out Oil" inscribed on his wing, before being unbalanced by a cable carrying the "Spider Cam", an aerial camera to film the meeting of above.
It was difficult to restore the controls before grazing a grandstand and crashing, without damage, on the grass.
At least one person in the gallery, slightly sounded following the incident, was taken away by the medics, and the activist was quickly arrested.
