In a harrowing incident, a small plane crash-landed into the back garden of a property on the Cae Bach Aur Estate in Bodffordd, near Llangefni, North Wales, on Saturday. Emergency services swiftly responded to the scene, with the pilot airlifted to hospital for treatment.

The crash, which occurred at approximately 1:44 pm local time, prompted a rapid deployment of North Wales Fire and Rescue alongside North Wales Police. Upon arrival, responders found the pilot, who was the sole occupant of the aircraft, with non-life-threatening injuries. He was promptly evacuated via air ambulance to receive medical attention.

Eyewitness Steve Davies, a resident living adjacent to the crash site, recounted the moments leading up to the incident, stating, “I heard a noise like an engine misfiring and cutting out followed by a sound like trees getting hit then a loud bang.” He expressed his shock upon realizing that it was a light aircraft that had crashed, highlighting the swift response of emergency services.

Fortunately, there were no other individuals aboard the aircraft at the time of the crash, sparing further casualties. The prompt action of emergency responders and the assistance rendered to the injured pilot have been commended by local residents.

A spokesperson for North Wales Fire and Rescue Service confirmed that the pilot sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to the hospital via air ambulance. They further reassured that no other injuries were reported from the scene.
