UPDATE: Pilot suffers minor injuries in crash


American pilot Richard Terrelonge suffered minor injuries this morning when the light aircraft he was flying crashed in a field at Ealing Grove, Christ Church.



Terrelonge, who was seen by eyewitnesses walking away from the crash site, was treated by emergency personnel on the scene but was later transported to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Terrelonge, the lone occupant of the aircraft, was at the time conducting circuit training, which involves takeoff and landing.

Barbados TODAY understands that the single engine aircraft, a Union Island-registered Piper, experienced engine failure, forcing Terrelonge to attempt to land at the field.



However, on landing the plane flipped and ended up resting upside down.IMG-20150726-WA0008 IMG-20150726-WA0007


The crash occurred next door to Frank Deane who told reporters on the scene he was working on the outside of his home when he heard a noise.

“All I heard was a noise, I ain’t see nothing . . . . There [is] some plywood behind here . . . and I thought the wind had blown over a piece of plywood. By the time I look out, the guy had already gone over to the other house up there and that was it.”

The Union island registered plane flies between Barbados and the Grenadine island.

    Thank God it wasn’t any thing more serious.
    I am happy he was able to walk away.
