Tributes to Salford death crash pilot Ian Daglish

  • 7-31-2011

The family of a 59-year-old man killed in a plane crash in Greater Manchester say he was an experienced pilot.

Father-of-two Ian Daglish, from Alderley Edge, died on Sunday after being injured in the crash with another man, aged 19, who is critically ill.

Their light aircraft plunged into two homes in Newlands Avenue, Peel Green, Salford on Friday.

The plane was on fire as it took off from Barton Aerodrome, the BBC understands.

'Family man'

The younger man received 60% burns in the crash.

A statement from Mr Daglish's family said: "Ian was, first and foremost, a family man - an extremely proud father of two teenage daughters, Hazel and Fiona, and devoted husband of Joy to whom he had been married for 26 years. He has one brother, Andrew.

"Ian and Joy moved to Alderley Edge in 1988 and have since established themselves firmly in the village. Ian was an active member of the community and was particularly interested in the history and conservation of the area.

"Ian was passionate and meticulous about all his interests especially his flying; he was an experienced pilot of many years."

His wife Joy added: "This is a shocking and sudden end to Ian's life and he will be sadly missed by his family, friends and the local community."
