Thank God they are ok.

Belfast telegraph reporting it as PA28, stalling on take off, but I wouldn't mind what I read.

In light of recent aviation incidents here and abroad its a relief to hear these guys walked away

"The light aircraft crash landed into a field near an air strip on the edge of the town."

Why do the press have refer to it as a crash landing. From the report it sounds like they made a forced landing , which of course as pilots we are all trained to do.

sorry just one of my pet hates :x

anyway i hope there ok.

A light aircraft crashed in a field near Trim Co Meath this afternoon.

The two people on board were taken to Our Lady's Hospital in Navan where they were treated for minor injuries.

The plane was attempting to land at an air strip outside Trim when the crash happened. It landed 250 metres short of the strip in a field.

The cause of the crash is being investigated by the Air Accident Investigation Unit.

Various web sites now referring to the downed craft as a PA28 and also that the engine "stalled" after takeoff.
Still no word on the reg though

Irish times today, page 2, says it suffered engine failure on take off. Cleared a row of trees and landed 500m from the strip.

Also says it got it's airworthyness 3 week ago, so that might help in finding the reg?

Registration is EI-WRN, you can almost read it in the picture in the independant.
When a flight is proceeding incredibly well, something was forgotten.
