        A dreadful event, too many lives turned upside down.

        Here is a weird thing. Twenty one years ago, in he SAME place !

        "Two people standing in the grounds of Waddesdon Manor were watching the glider whilst they waited for relatives. They became aware of the Grumman AA-5B Tiger when it flew almost overhead. It appeared to be flying straight and level at a steady speed, and they were surprised when it did not take early action to avoid the glider.

        They continued to watch both aircraft and at a very late stage, they saw the AA-5B Tiger bank to the right, as if to avoid the glider. They thought that the aircraft had come extremely close to each other but had not touched. However, almost immediately, the Tiger entered a diving turn to the left, from which it did not recover. The witnesses heard the AA-5B Tiger's engine running all the way down the dive, and both were of the impression that the aircraft was behaving as if there was no corrective action from the pilot.

        Another witness in the garden of a house close to the impact site saw the Tiger in the final moments of what appeared to be a vertical, high-speed dive. She immediately instigated a 999 telephone call, and the police logged the reporting time as 11:05 hours (10:05 hours UTC).
