Light Air Craft Crash

1956 - 1959 Aprx

By Tony Hudson

I remember a light aircraft crashing into a bunker beside the old 17th fairway.  It flew over my house making a loud noise heading in the direction of the Carpenders Park Station.

Must have been in trouble and trying to land on the golf course.

  • I remember seeing the wreck after I must have been off the estate that day as I only heard about it once down but all the kids were over after the first few days, climbing all over, and as someone else boys were stripping it for souvenirs

  • I remember this plane crash, but when I went over to see it, there was a Bobby standing guard

  • The aircraft was a twin engined Miles Gemini and was a star attraction amongst us kids who I’m afraid to say stripped bits from it. I think it came down in the mid fifties so 1956 would be about right.
