Fatal crash plane hits rail line

Two people are feared dead after their light aircraft crashed into the overhead power lines of the West Coast Main Line in Staffordshire, reports the BBC. The aircraft came down in Little Haywood, near Stafford, just before 1200 GMT.

There are a lot more light aircraft flying around the UK. It may be premature, but the likelihood of a smaller plane crashing appears to be significantly higher than a commercial jetliner. It is always unnerving when a plane crashes. Regretably there were no survivors.

BBC Report.
