This forum is primarily for discussion on anything to do with general aviation, but other aviation topics are also welcome.
Chipmunk and 150 on their backs. 172 crushed wingtip. Bulldog minus a rudder. Bolkow Junior with flaps and ailerons at jaunty angles. Spoke with Coastguard chap who'd come in from Stornoway in an S92 - said they were covering for the Navy Seakings who couldn't engage rotors due to wind strength. Glasgow Atis gave 56G81kt at around 0800 this morning.
Its a privately owned C172. Fortunately all TAFC aircraft are always hangared and are ok.
I would attach a pic but "Sorry, the board attachment quota has been reached."
That's awful news. To last as long as that one must have and then for it to get wrecked by a bit of wind is so sad. They are not rare aeroplanes, but not that common either and they are a bit special. And now they are a lttle bit rarer.
Sent from my Bardic lamp held out of the window of a Churnet Valley signal box.
It's sad about the planes, but thankfully only two deaths and very few casualties from yesterday. It could have been a lot worse, and being a Bank Holiday in Scotland yesterday might have helped as a lot of people were at home.
