A man was killed and another gravely injured in the crash of their de Havilland Tiger Moth (XL716/G-AOIL) on May 15, 2011 near Witchampton, in Dorset. The exact cause of the accident is yet unknown, but eyewitnesses thought the aircraft was doing aerobatics and heard the engine quit shortly before the crash.
