Tuesday 31st May 2016 – 9.30am – Murray MacGregor.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Shifnal Airfield at just before 5.00pm on Monday afternoon to reports of a light aircraft crash.

The Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford and a land ambulance arrived on scene six minutes after the 999 call.  They were backed up by a second land ambulance and a paramedic area support officer.

Sadly, the MERIT Trauma doctor updated shortly afterwards that there was nothing that could be done to save the two occupants and they were confirmed dead at the scene.
