BBC News reports:

Helicopter crashes in rural field

A helicopter has crashed into a field in north Derbyshire.

Emergency services were called to the scene of the crash at Old Tupton near Chesterfield at 1030 GMT.

A spokesperson from Derbyshire Police said the helicopter crashed as it made a "forced landing" at the field near Mill Lane.

The two people who were in the aircraft were not injured in the crash. They managed to climb out of the helicopter before fire crews arrived.

Firefighters had to reach the site on foot because of its rural location.

Police said the incident will be reported to the Civil Aviation Authority.


I believe this was a training flight, with instructor and student on board.

Aicraft is R22, believe it to be G-UNYT. I gather the skids dug into the ground during the forced landing.

I am glad that both instructor and student walked away from this - probably a testiment to the excellent instructors we are fortunate enough to have in this part of the world.

Lets hope the rest of 2007 goes better for rotary flight in the UK than the last month.
