Pilotlife­saver hedge crash

Irish Sunday Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

A PI­LOT whose mi­cro­light plane had lost power saved him­self and a pas­sen­ger by de­lib­er­ately crash-land­ing in a huge Ley­landi hedge.

The men had only mi­nor wounds but the air­craft was se­verely dam­aged.

The Air Ac­ci­dent In­ves­ti­ga­tion Branch said his not re­turn­ing to Fos­ton air­field, Lincs, “re­duced the risk” of a fa­tal crash.
