I'm used to saying to people on the phone "Hang on while the plane flies through the lounge room" but today it was really too close.
A kilometre as the crow flies and I did hear both planes go overhead.
I didn't know anything else until my sister rang to tell me one of the nurses saw it come down as she was on her way to work.
Considering how long the airport has been there, there have been few really bad accidents. This one was a freak with two planes so close that one tipped the wing of the other.
It was very close to the school though and witnesses said the pilot tried to get away from it.
