Carrick Hills, Ayr, Ayrshire, Scotland. Light Aircraft Plane Crash.....? (12nov2011) [00:31]
We were up at the Carrick Hills above Ayr and Dunure, overlooking the Firth of Clyde listening to some CB and amateur radio transmissions, mostly from America (KB0EO, Dan from Minnesota in this video), when this light aircraft turned and appeared to drop suddenly into a valley. To the uneducated (me!), it dissappeared below the horizon, looking like it wasn't coming back up. Obviously the pilot had a better idea of the situation than I did, as it reappeared a few seconds later. No emergency. No crash, no drama. No eyebrows were removed by a big fireball in the making of this video! Recorded using a Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ9 on WVGA mode
