Shobdon Airfield plane crash: Pilot dies after aircraft crashed at aerodrome in Herefordshire

This morning’s plane crash at Leominster, Herefordshire’s Shobdon Airfield claimed the life of a man.

Prior to the pilot’s disastrous mid-air tumble shortly after 10 a.m., witnesses working in a nearby field observed him performing tricks in mid-air.

The plane, which had been circling in the air, plunged down in a single, breath-taking moment.

Until the aeroplane landed at the airfield and caught fire, the perilous plunge continued.

A man in his 50s has tragically been identified as deceased. In the fixed-wing aircraft, nobody else was there.

Unfortunately, the pilot was stuck inside the aircraft despite the rapid arrival of emergency personnel, including an air ambulance. He was beyond saving.

An investigation into the horrific incident has now been started by the Air Accidents Investigation Branch.

A representative for the West Midlands Ambulance Service stated: “When we got there, we saw a fixed-wing small aircraft that had crashed at the airstrip.

“One male patient remained inside the aircraft.

“Sadly, it quickly became apparent nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead at the scene.”

Fortunately, a representative for West Mercia Police stated there were no other injuries, no one else was on board, and no other aircraft were involved.

A neighbourhood citizen who wished to remain unnamed claimed that when a fire engine sped past, she realised something was amiss.

A police car, ambulances, including an air ambulance that took off around 40 minutes later, all arrived quickly after.

A barrier erected across the road at the airfield this afternoon read: “Due to unforeseen circumstances, the airfield is temporarily closed.
