Emergency Services turned out to Ronaldsway this evening after two light aircraft collided on the airfield.

There were no inuries but the aircraft involved sustained damage.

The IOM Fire Service issued this statement:

At approximately 17:25hrs on Friday 12th June 2015 appliances from Castletown, Port Erin and Douglas Stations were dispatched by the Emergency Joint Control Room following a report of an incident involving two small aircrafts that had collided on the runway at Ronaldsway Airport. This was a pre-determined attendance to give back up to the Airports own Fire and Rescue Service which had also been deployed.
 
On arrival crews identified that the aircraft were two small Cessna aircraft that had crossed each other’s path at low speed. Unfortunately one of the aircraft received damage to its wing caused by contact with the propeller of the other aircraft. Although there were no injuries caused to the pilots one wing of one of the Cessna’s was left a foot shorter. The Air Accident Investigation Branch was informed of all details and all appliances were stood down with no further assistance required.
