Plane Crash over Woodborough - 50th Anniversary

On the 26th May 2016 it was be the 50th anniversary of two jet Provost training jet aircraft [similar to the one shown right] colliding over Woodborough, sending debris down on to many parts of the village. It is indeed a miracle that no one on the ground was either injured or killed and both pilots parachuted to safety. Also no buildings were damaged and the photos of debris in and around the village testifies to how much fallout there was from these two planes.

The time of the collision was 8.46am and there were several people either working or going to work also children were walking to their school on Lingwood Lane.
