Plane damaged in ‘short’ landing

A VINTAGE Tiger Moth was damaged when it landed short of the runway at Wickenby Airfield on Thursday.

Two pilots were on board but neither of them was injured. The plane was left with damage to its wings but is being repaired.

Wickenby Airfield manager Gerald Cooper said he believed the pilots were from Lincoln and Newark and both used the airfield regularly.

He said emergency services attended as it was ‘standard protocol’ for any aircraft incident.
