Dramatic picture shows plane upside down in farmer’s field after crash

THIS dramatic image shows a light aircraft in a rather unusual position — upside down in a farmer’s field.

The plane crashed on a landing strip near Sandridge, Hertfordshire, with the pilot walking away unscathed.

Station commander Lee Hutchinson, who works for Hertfordshire fire and rescue service, tweeted the dramatic photo of the incident, which happened shortly before 4.15pm on Monday.

He wrote: ‘Great use of @what3words [a location system] by @HertsFRSControl to help locate this incident today. Thankfully no serious injuries.’

Three crews from Hertfordshire fire and rescue were called to the crash site.

They said: ‘Hertfordshire fire and rescue service was called to Tower Hill Lane, Sandridge, at 4.15pm on August 31 after a light aircraft crashed on a landing strip.

‘Crews from Hatfield, Wheathampstead and Welwyn Garden City attended the incident, which, fortunately, did not result in any serious injuries.

‘The incident was closed at just after 5pm.’
