    Sad news! It just mentions a biplane - anyone know what type?

          The Henley Standard (web) carries a short piece, including the quote that there aeroplane had been 'taking part in aerobatics' shortly before the crash.

          Maybe, maybe not;- since non-flying eyewitnesses are often unsure quite what they are seeing, and , for instance, a non-intentional spin could be interpreted as an aerobatic figure.

            It appears to have been a Stampe SV4C (not White Waltham based). I don't think it is appropriate to go into further detail until the official statements are made.

            Thoughts are with the occupants' families and friends.

            A sad day.

                    Sad accident indeed - aircraft involved was SV4C G-BIMO.

                      Sorry this might flag up as a new incident, there is no way for me to amend the thread title.

                      As widely supposed, (another) non intentional spin.

                      Report here.

                        They showed the aeroplane on the local news. It was out of Compton. It was a Tiger Moth in Royal Navy silver and yellow WW2 markings. One person interviewed on local TV said it dived into a field. It was aerobating apparently. The TV showed the plane... it was completely demolished from the nose to the trailing edge area - the cockpit area and wings were gone. The tail was ok. So it went in nose first at speed and a steep attitude. Apparently the crew were shouting as it came down. I had a crash in a Tiger once and the only thing I can think a pilot would shout to a passenger about would be to recycle the mag switches. On the tiger each cockpit has a set of mags. I wonder if the engine stalled (inverted?) and the pilot was trying to get the passenger to check the second cockpit mag switches were flipped up?

                        ... report...
                        One of the two people who were pulled alive from the wreckage of a Tiger Moth biplane which crashed in Dorset has died.
                        The pilot and the passenger were airlifted to hospital following the accident near Wimborne.
                        One of the men died overnight from his injuries sustained in the accident, Dorset Police confirmed.
                        The aircraft, which had set off from Compton Abbas airfield, reportedly had been performing aerobatics shortly before it crashed into a field.
                        Eyewitness Geoff Hill, 49, said he watched as the plane spiralled down near his home.
                        "I could hear the crew shouting as it got closer to the ground and then it smashed in.
                        "I ran up to the crash site. Both crew members were in a bad way with huge cuts. They were in a lot of pain.
                        "I held one of the men's head as he had a large gash and waited until the emergency crews arrived."
                        After the crash the pilot - a local man - was taken to Salisbury District Hospital by the Dorset Police helicopter.
                        The passenger, a 26-year-old man from Poole, was flown by air ambulance to Dorset County Hospital.

                          Might want to amend or delete your post, we are not talking about the recent accident!
