Deadly plane crash at Queen’s estate

TWO people have died in a light plane crash on the Queen’s Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, England.

The pilot, in his 50s, and a female passenger in her 70s, died when the Piper PA-28 came down and crashed on private marshland near Wolferton on Monday.

Police said the pair were pronounced dead at the scene. The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) is investigating.

“Our inspectors are on site gathering evidence and conducting interviews,” an AAIB spokesman said.

“We expect to recover the aircraft later today and take it to our facility in Farnborough (in Hampshire) where a detailed examination can take place while our investigation continues.” Wolferton lies within Sandringham Estate and is near the north Norfolk coast.

It’s not believed Her Majesty was in residence at the time of the incident.
