Narrative:
The aircraft experienced a noseover during a force landing south of near the A366 Farleigh Road Farm Shop, off the A36 Warminster Road, Norton St Philip in Bath, Somerset. Multiple crews from Dorset and Wiltshire Fire & Rescue, and a crew from Frome’s fire station were sent to the scene at 1.18pm. The crew from Frome located the incident, near to the Farleigh Road farm shop, and confirmed a light aircraft had crashed and was on its roof.

Paul Slaven, of D&SFRS, said “The pilot was free of the aircraft uninjured. We sent four appliances and crews righted the aircraft and checked it was safe. The pilot was out of the aircraft on our arrival and did not need medical attention.”

The fire crews helped the two men to right the aircraft off its roof. The airplane sustained substantial damage and the occupant was not injured.
