Small aircraft in landing drama at Langham Airfield, near Blakeney

Two people had a narrow escape this afternoon when the Xenair plane in which they were travelling developed engine trouble and landed short of the runway at the privately-owned Langham Airfield, near Blakeney, coming to rest in a field.

Neither person was injured.

Firefighters from Wells and Holt attended, fearing a fuel leak, but their services were not needed.

Police were alerted to the incident by airfield staff just before 2.30pm.
