Probably this Aerosport Scamp, which fits the reported "bumblebee" colour scheme and is based at RAF Mona, a few hundred yards away from the crash location:

Where on earth do the BBC get their 'reporters' from??? In that article:
A light aircraft is a small plane which is suitable for carrying only a small number of passengers.
Muppets! (Apologies, that it probably an insult to Muppets!)

I hope the pilot gets back flying soon.

I hope the Pilot is okay. Did he injure his ligamentous nuchal?

If that's the case we had better get used to this sort of rubbish from the BBC and others. What a depressing thought.

And is is even more depressing when you see that it took three people to write that report.
