Salford man describes moment plane hit his house

  • 7-31-2011

A man has described the moment a light aircraft crashed into his Salford home, leaving two men critically injured.

Colin Maher said he could hear one man shouting for help after the plane burst into flames after hitting two houses.

The pilot and passenger, one in his late 50s and the other aged 21, are in Wythenshawe Hospital, where the older man is said to be very critical.

The crash was in Newlands Avenue, Peel Green, at about 12:20 BST on Friday.

The plane, operated by Ravenair flying school, was on fire as it took off from Barton Aerodrome, the BBC understands.

Mr Maher, who has only lived in the house for six months, rushed out of his home and saw the plane's tail end on fire.
