Collision - 17 November 2017
« on: November 17, 2017, 02:45:01 PM »
Just heard about a collision near Aylesbury, Bucks, between a fixed-wing and a helicopter.  Thames Valley Police attending and say first action is preservation of life.

Thoughts with all involved and for a happy outcome.

"Both aircraft involved in the mid-air collision near Waddesdon, Buckinghamshire, came from Wycombe Air Park, near High Wycombe, a spokesman confirmed.
The airstrip is located around 20 miles south of the crash site."

Flying together or pure coincidence?

A few news outlets reporting the worst.

The fixed wing aircraft seems to be Cessna 152, G-WACG.

The pilot of the cabri was a true gentleman. He took me for my instructor course and my first instructor renewal.
