Has A Light Aircraft Gone Down Near Peterborough?

Fri Sep 02, 2011 3:49 pm

Just had a call from my sister asking what has gone down near Peterborough? She of course called the plane geek in the family but I cant see anything on the news as yet. Apparently its taken down some power lines as a friend of hers is stuck in traffic.
