A plane from RAF Cranwell has come down in a field at Byards Leap in Ancaster, Lincolnshire, on Thursday 23 August 2012. The pilot was not injured in the incident.

The damage does not look serious so I have changed it from write off. The reg is visible from the photos. From colleagues in the RAF I am told that 2 POB were carrying out a PFL climb away when the blade detached and returned to their initial field.
