RIP to the man's family.

A man has died in a mid-air collision between two light aircraft in Gloucestershire.

Police said one aircraft came down in the grounds of the fire service training college at Moreton-in-Marsh at about midday on Sunday.

"The 34-year-old male pilot from the Coventry area was the sole occupant of one plane and died as a result of injuries sustained," police said.

The second aircraft, although damaged, landed safely in an area nearby.

Its two male occupants were not seriously injured, said the police spokesman who also asked for witnesses to contact Gloucestershire Police.

Cessna 152 and a microlight was the initial rumour.

Time will tell.
