Arwel Jones, 56, said he lived a few houses down from the crash and heard the aircraft's engine cut out.

"It was over our estate and you could hear that the engine was getting starved on fuel and just ticking over," he said.

"He was so low to the ground and he just ploughed down into a tree in a neighbour's garden.

"I couldn't believe my eyes. When we saw that happening I was just hoping he hadn't crashed into anybody or into anybody's house."Mr Jones said he rushed out to the front of his house, adding his son and a few others ran down to the site and said "the pilot was OK and talking".
