Light Aircraft crash at Blackbushe.

A small aircraft has apparently lost control on landing at Blackbushe, left the runway, hit cars in a car park, and caught fire.
No details on occupants.

..show aerial view after fire put out. Appears to be in middle of car parking area. Perhaps not a straight forward runway over run as some cars undamaged all around?

I hope everyone is ok, but I have a feeling it's not good.

That is a regular visitor to Blackbushe , seen it many times. Not the first time a biz jet has gone off the far end of RWY25 a Beechcraft light jet just missed the fuel dump on the other side of the runway some years ago.

Not a very overrun friendly area at the western end of this runway with the auction site to the right and a busy car park for auction customers pretty much right on the runway end and unless it was going pretty slowly I too am fearful about the prospects for survivors.

Not exactly Saudi royal family, IIRC it is owned by the family of the late but not dearly departed Osama Bin Laden...

And an intact line of trees between the runway end and the location of the wreckage, clearly seen in the footage from Sky's helicopter:

I am not a pilot or flier but do know the site a bit. I seem to recall the car auction site is a lower level to the runway, and there may also be a raised bank (bund) between the two so it may be possible the bank will have lifted the aircraft causing it to jump the bushes and some of the cars?

Bushes rather than trees, and not that intact really, if you look at the video about 1:30 you can clearly see a trail of something having ploughed through, right on the extended runway centerline, and there's also a trail of debris on the pavement between the bushes and the point of impact.

One also has the impression that the terrain with the bushes is slightly elevated, the aircraft might have briefly bounced up as it went through.

Short runway, a bit high or fast on the approach or a bit of a float and theres not really anywhere to go at Blackbushe except a very quick decision to go around. Although as I said this plane was a very regular visitor and would know the place well assuming same pilot (single pilot ops?) and much larger biz jets operate in and out regularly. Very sad.

The airfield changed hands a few months ago, and within days the Sunday market was closed. The local rumour was that the car auctions car park would be moved to the market site to the north of the runway to allow the car park to be converted to an overrun area.

Yes but the airport fire truck may have taken the most direct route to the crash site, doubt they went round the public road A30.

Sorry, I don't buy that - a 50' wingspan aircraft didn't plough through those trees/bushes.

Plus the access road that runs immediately behind and parallel to them has cars/vans parked on both sides, all of which appear intact.

But I suspect you're right in that we're looking at an aircraft that became airborne again briefly, and the small area that the wreckage covers would suggest that it impacted the ground with relatively little horizontal speed.

The airport fire truck was probably able to go out my the hangar and in to the BCA site that way.
