Wycombe Air Park plane crash - 2011

A light aircraft crashed as it was taking off from Wycombe Air Park in June 2011.

Passengers were described as “lucky” to have walked away from the crash, Cheryle Dickson, who was sitting in the front of the aircraft, told the Bucks Free Press “the pilot saved us all”.

She also revealed that told how they both returned to the skies three days later in a highly emotional flight to try to overcome the trauma of the accident.

Denham Green plane landing crash -2006

The aircraft was completing a flight from Durham Tees Valley Airport before crashing in a wooded area just off the runway.

The descent was initiated some 25 minutes before the intended landing and on the final approach for the runway, the right engine ran down.

The pilot attempted to increase power on the left engine but it did not appear to respond with the aircraft descended into a wooded area short of the runway, seriously injuring all those on board.

The investigation identified that fuel starvation of both engines was the cause of the accident.
