Local BBC TV News has just reported on a light aircraft crash near Wymeswold at around 8pm this evening - no details confirmed as yet re the pilot etc. Fingers crossed and hoping for a positive outcome!

Little bits I'm hearing isn't good, was worried it was one of ours but isn't. Fact they were looking for relatives before saying anything reads volumes sadly. Will not add anything else about type etc.

Yes not good, I use the term "guys" as a generic term in this case, Rest In Peace "Guys" Condolences to the family involved and their friends.

I've just heard the sad news on the local radio, whilst driving back from Newark Air Museum - they carried an interview with a local resident who seems to have been one of the first people on the scene and he was very emotional about what he encountered. Blue skies to those involved!

My heart goes out to the rest of the family. I know kind words will not bring them back but what else do we have?

I believe that's the same person I heard on the radio yesterday afternoon (#9) - as you say not easy viewing (or listening).
