19 April, 2018 - by Declan Kearney


Sinn Féin South Antrim MLA, Declan Kearney has extended condolences to the families of those who died in the Nutts Corner aircraft crash.

Declan Kearney said: 

“I am saddened to hear that two lives have been lost in the light aircraft crash at Nutts Corner.

“Whatever the cause of the crash, it is appears that those on board tried their best to land the aircraft safely, and away from populated areas.

“Whilst this succeeded in avoiding wide scale casualties, a safe landing regrettably proved impossible and those on board were tragically killed in the subsequent crash.

“I want to extend my sincere condolences to the families of those killed, and also commend those local people for their quick response and their efforts to assist in such harrowing circumstances.”
