On 4 August at around 10:30 (UTC +1), a Piper PA-28 light aircraft (registered G-BCJN) carrying one pilot and two passengers crashed into a ditch next to the A429 after overshooting the runway at Cotswold Airport, United Kingdom. The three were taken to hospital.
The adjacent road (A429) was closed for several hours to remove debris and fuel.
The U.K.’s Air Accident Investigation Branch is opening an investigation into the mishap.
