Per eyewitness report: 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.”
