Birmingham Airport Forum | Airport closed- Cessna crash
Latest reports suggest this flight was carrying a transplant organ. The organ has apparently been taken on to hospital, so fingers crossed it's still viable.
Heavy fog at the airport apparently, with flights diverted elsewhere following this incident.
I've heard things are looking bad for one crew member at least but fingers crossed for all involved.
Hope the organ transplant still works??
Sad news, thoughts with all on board.
Do you mean the PAPI?
Reports suggest it was on fire shortly before landing, engine fire maybe, or hit something?
"Mr Kehoe said the plane hit the instrument landing system glide path antennae (ILS) and had come to rest about 130m (426ft) to the right hand side of the southerly-facing runway."
according to the news sites it was delivered successfully to the hospital. That's as far as it goes, as I expect the hospital doesn't want the patient identified because of the news vultures who don't respect privacy when there's a lurid story to be had about fireballs and livers.
