It was most probably on approach for 06. Eastwood park is only a mile or so away from SEN.

The pilot was a 16 year old on his second solo flight. Picture shown in todays Metro show AAIB investigators at the scene. Very sad for all involved.

Im aware this is a bit on the older side here, but Ill just say that I knew the person involved with this crash from my pervious School. They wernt someone I knew a great deal of, however its very strange knowing someone involved.

Rest In Peace Sam.
