Oh my, I was briefly following one on FR24 earlier too in that neck of the woods. I see the Falcon 20s from BOH are circling close by. Wishing the best...

One witness said: "I saw 2 parachutes. Don't know where the plane crash landed though. Hope everyone ok"
Fingers crossed.

Devon & Cornwall Police have just Tweeted that 2 people have been treated at the scene and are now being taken to hospital, and that their injuries are not thought to be life threatening or changing.

It popped up on the alerts for FR24 just before 09:30, it then disappeared over the water about 5 miles south of Falmouth.

Martin-Baker have just Tweeted about another successful ejection courtesy of their products, so I'm guessing all is well...

Do they use Irvin parachutes (or the successor company)? If so I assume there will be caterpillar club badges on the way eventually as well.

Sadly, now one less T1 to be considered. I'm also sure that I'm not the only one who feels that the MB patch is, shall we say, capable of more than one interpretation.

Very glad to hear that the crew are OK!

XX189? What a shame - I first flew it over 40 years ago on the first of the new TWU courses with 63 Sqn at Heaven-in-Devon.

If that had been built by the Wright Brothers it would have still been operating during the 2nd World War.
