    Woman injured after biplane crashes during take-off

    Woman injured after biplane crashes during take-off

    A woman watching a charity event at an airfield was injured when a former RAF Tiger Moth biplane crashed during take-off and hit parked cars.

    The accident happened at the private Brimpton Airfield near Reading in Berkshire on June 5 during a “fly-in” to raise money for the area’s air ambulance.

    Serious injuries sustained

    The woman, who is in her 60s, sustained serious facial injuries as result of the airplane accident. She had to be airlifted to the nearby Oxfordshire’s John Radcliffe Hospital.

    The Tiger Moth’s two pilots and a passenger – men also aged in their 60s – escaped the accident with minor injuries and were treated by paramedics at the scene.

    Hundreds watched the event

    The incident, which was attended by local police, firefighters and ambulance crews, has been reported to the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB).

    Brimpton Flying Club member Eugene Johnson said around 100 people had been watching the event. No display had been involved, he added, “just planes taking off and landing” at the airfield.
