Wot Happened

Understand a light aircraft became inverted in a landing incident at Bridge Pa, Hastings this afternoon. Also heard that the 75 year old pilot walked away unharmed. I'm told that the aircraft was a blue one. I hope it was not the Stearman that is based there. Anyone know more?

Certainly not Holmes, this one is blue and yellow. I saw the sad remains of Holmes's Stearman carted off on the back of a lorry.

I harmonize with your judgment RadioScone, conversely, Chinese is incomprehensible to the unacquainted, consequently so is the pioneering skill of txting
