    'Jet' crash at Fairoaks.

    http://www.getsurrey.co.uk/news/surr...e-jet-12031603

    Aircraft can be seen as M-V**B but probably not a jet. Pilot lightly injured.

      Technically a jet, though not in the way the popular press likes to categorise them.

      Good news about the crew whatever.

        Good news about the crew. From my casual acquaintance with them, they do appear to be stouter than the typical SEL (as you'd expect from a pressurized aircraft).

        The closest thing to a jet that most private pilots need.
        A friend had one for years, even flew it to France.

        When he retired he sold it, thinking he didn't need such a capable aircraft and bought successively, a very nice Bonanza A-36 and a late model Mooney.
        Now, he's gone back and bought another TBM, he likes them that much...

        There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.
