Piper PA-28-140 Cherokee, G-BBBK


The aircraft was returning to Blackpool Airport following a VFR flight from Exeter Airport. The weather conditions at Blackpool were poor, with low cloud and limited visibility. The pilot was unable to locate the airfield visually and, while descending through cloud with a base of around 100 ft, at twilight, the aircraft flew into the sea. It sank in shallow water; neither of the two persons on board survived.
