    Yak 52 down nr Salisbury. 1 fatality

    http://www.salisburyjournal.co.uk/ne...hes_in_Dinton/

    PLANE crashed in a field near Dinton today with two men on board.

    One man was cut free from the wreckage, while the second died at the scene.

    It is understood the bright yellow and blue, civilian Yak-52 light aircraft was headed to Boscombe Down.

    The ambulance service says there are two male casualties, one with a leg injury.

    Two fire crews from Salisbury and one from Wilton attended.

    Two air ambulances, a coastguard helicopter and a road ambulance were also on the scene, as well as the police who have cordoned off the area.

    AS the Mail reports it. Not an airfield I was familiar with. R.I.P.

    Looks like the Yak was operating out of Bosc Down as part of test flying course (ETPS).

    Thoughts with family and friends of the crew

    AAIB report now available with criticism of the safety of the plane and abilities of the pilot with this aircraft.

    Just to clarify NF
    That is the SI (Service Inquiry) report,the AAIB report has not been published yet AFAIK.
    The SI was necessary because Alex was a serving RAF pilot and flying out of an MOD airfield on duty.
