Yes, the aircraft involved was a Beaver. The British journalist involved was Peter Snow, who presents the long running TV series, Tomrrows World on BBC. He is also the reason most people tune into the BBC when there's a British general election, as he has a famous "Swingometer" which shows the shift between the major parties and is well known for his excited and enthusiastic performance on such occasions.

Thankfully, he survived.
