Sky News bloke to witness on phone:

"Any ideas what might have caused it to crash"



Hope that people on board are ok, but unfortunately doesn't look good from the pictures

Heard this 30mins ago by luck my father heard the incident was listening to scanner (live 10 mins fom biggin and farnborough. At the time India99 put a 2 mile exclusion around biggin (missed the mayday ha was on thames) but india99 said that it had ident 2 landing sites for inbond military heli's (3 at that time) so I have been very confused for the last 30 mins, glad PPRuNe could shed some light...tragic for all involved thoughts with them but the military involvement from India99 still interesting?

Agreed.

Come on Mod's - get a grip! This is news, albeit sad news. Move the story back to where it belongs.

If it was VP-BGE, took off EGKB 13:32z on its way to LFBP (Pau, France). Judging by the pictures, does not look good at all.

Well if it was VP-BGE, why would it be back in the vicinity of Biggin around the time it was supposed to be landing in France? Also, the flight plan on CFMU has an Actual time of arrival for the flight of 1554Z (i.e.landed) so maybe this was a different aircraft... ?

The usual conjecture and rubbish reported on the news - anyone at Biggin know anything about it?

Not good to be jumping to conclusions about what aircraft it is at the minute. Very sad incident .
