Plane Crashes Outside of Wrexham (Pics)
This afternoon just after 1:35pm a plane crashed at Eryrys, to the west of Wrexham.
Eryrys is about five miles south of Mold and eight miles west of Wrexham out past Coedpoeth and is one of the highest villages in Wales.
Pam Sheldon who took these photos and got in touch with Wrexham.com said “This gentleman was landing his Tiger Moth plane in the field behind ours but he overshot it and because of power lines he couldn’t pull up so tried to go between two trees but clipped one and crashed in our field.
“He had knocked on our door early to find the land owner for permission to land and took my number to text me when he was setting off so that I could take photos of him flying and landing.”
Emergency services attended the scene, but the male pilot was thankfully unhurt.
A ‘tiger moth’ plane is a 1930s biplane, with around 250 still flying today.
Pam said “It was so scarey, i never want to see anything like that again. I am so happy no one was hurt though”.
