Plane crash in Epping Forest - 30ft in front of us

We had to spend today - a gloriously sunny Sunday in November - doing something outdoorsy.  So off we headed to Epping Forest to walk among the falling yellow leaves and soft mud.

Earlier that day we saw an emergency ambulance taking a injured walker to hospital.

Then a few of hours later, we were shocked to witness a plane crash - less than 30 ft in front of us! Fortunately no one was injured but the plane was severely damaged.  It looked a write-off - the nose was crushed, a wing had detached and parts of the engine was strewn the ground.

As we approached the wreck, we were joined by the owner, and we commiserated him on this loss of his model aircraft.
