Still no answers for Welwyn Garden City man after plane crash
A MAN who survived a collision with a plane is demanding answers after being left in the dark by crash investigators for almost four months.
Last autumn, the WHT reported how a dog walker had a lucky escape after a plane crashed on take-off from Panshanger Aerodrome in WGC.
But although Clive Winsor admits he’s lucky to be alive, he is angered by the lack of information he’s received from anyone involved with the subsequent investigation.
Although an investigation is under way by the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB), Mr Winsor told the WHT he has not heard from anyone since the accident on October 27, 2009.
“I’ve heard nothing from no-one about it and I’m getting sick of it,” said Mr Winsor, 51.

Since the accident, Mr Windsor says he has been left on crutches and is unable to return to his job as a bricklayer.
“I’m not complaining, because I’m still alive. Accidents happen and I’m one lucky fella,” he said.

“But you can’t leave people not knowing like this. I want closure.
“This has put everything on hold. It’s taken my livelihood away and it’s ruined my life.”
The AAIB said that an investigation into the crash was ongoing, but it was unable to say how long it would take to complete.
