Vietnamese dignitaries paid tribute to Waddesdon air crash victim Trung Thanh Nguyen at his funeral in Amersham this morning. 

The Vietnamese national, who was a pilot with years of experience, was one of four men who sadly died in a mid-air crash near Waddesdon on November 17. 

Captain Trung, a father and husband, was reportedly a deputy manager of a Vietnamese Army training centre and was in the UK on a two-month training programme to become a military flight instructor.

The 32-year-old's funeral was held at 10am today in the Milton Chapel at Chilterns Crematorium in Amersham. 

Captain Trung's sister and a number of Vietnamese dignitaries and officials from the Vietnamese embassy attended, walking in front of the hearse as it pulled into the crematorium and carrying photographs and flowers. 

His coffin was draped in a Vietnamese flag and was adorned with flowers, including an arrangement in the shape of a helicopter. 

Captain Trung's funeral, which was organised through Beacon Funeral Services, comes just days after inquests into his death - along with Saavan Singh Mundae, 18, Jaspal Singh Bahra, 27, and helicopter pilot Michael Green, 74 - were opened at Bucks Coroners' Court in Beaconsfield. 

All four inquests were adjourned to a pre-inquest review hearing on May 16, 2018 at 10am.
