Tragic News

On behalf of the Chairman, Directors, members and staff of the Ulster Flying Club, it is with great sadness and regret that we must share the tragic news that two of our club members lost their lives in the aircraft crash that took place at our airfield in Newtownards last night, the 19th July, at approx. 20:20.

The incident is being investigated now by specialist investigators from the PSNI and the Air Accident Investigation Branch of the CAA. Whilst those investigations are ongoing, we can release no further information or details. For further information, please contact the PSNI.

Our thoughts at this most terrible time are with the families and friends of the two people involved.
