Accidents do happen. I hope the two guys in the plane make a full recovery. They are in my thoughts and prayers. Rather than negative comments being made everyone should pull together in this world.

Cannot believe the comments below. Some people only think of themselves rather than the lives of others. My friend works with the pilot at Jet2 and she is so upset by this. Hope him and his brother are ok.

the above family need to wise up. These folk did not crash in purpose. take your issues up with local council and airfield owners not these poor folk who are now injured. You've made an absolute idiot of yourselves!!

To be fair... If the mcintyres had voiced concerns about low flying planes over their property, obviously they werent heeded! I dont think its fair to cristicise them, a plane crash on your property is a pretty wild event!. Of course they should be concerned for those involved thank jah they are ok.. but this is UTV maybe they should have a chat with a solicitor and the owners of the airstrip rather than venting on here lol

Life is about living and everyone getting along. There is too much sickness in this world for people to be making silly comments. Thank The Lord the two people involved in this accident yes accident are still alive. Compassion should be shown by everyone. The comment that Patricia McIntyre has made is absolutely terrible. Such bitterness. How a human being could be like that. I really do not know. Well never mind silly comments. I hope the pilot and passenger Make a speedy recovery. They will be in my prayers.
