Two people were injured at the weekend when a veteran biplane crashed after hitting trees close to RAF Lossiemouth.
The familiar yellow Tiger Moth came down at around 7.45pm on Sunday after striking the top of trees near the Shempston Estate alongside the Moray base.
Three fire appliances, five police vehicles and an RAF Rescue helicopter attended the crash.
One occupant of the aircraft was treated by paramedics at the scene while the other was described as “walking wounded”. It is thought neither suffered serious injuries.
An Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Neither had life-threatening injuries although both were taken to Dr Gray’s Hospital in Elgin for treatment.”
The aircraft is well known in Moray and can be seen most weekends overflying the area.
It is owned local haulier Robin Falconer, 63. The 80-year-old Tiger Moth uses a grass runway next to Mr Falconer's home at Shempston Farmhouse. It is flown on Mr Falconer’s behalf by a professional pilot.
Mr Falconer regularly uses the aircraft for charity and pleasure purposes, often with celebrity passengers including Elgin-born actor Kevin McKidd.
Last night local councillor Carolle Ralph said she was "shocked" on learning that the aircraft had crashed. She said: “We see it in the skies regularly when the weather is fine as it was this weekend.
“I did hear all the sirens and wondered what was going on - at first I thought it was an incident on the beach. It was concerning to hear about the accident and my thoughts are with the two people involved and their families.”
A spokesman for the UK Air Accidents Investigations Board said they were aware of the crash but did not intend sending investigators to the scene.
He said: “Subsequent enquiries will be through correspondence which will involve writing to the pilot and anyone else involved.”
