RAF Hawk crashes in to barrier after aborted take-off

The incident occurred on Monday at RAF Valley, Anglesey. The pilot was beginning his take-off run when he spotted a flock of birds in his path. He therefore decided to abort the take-off but by then had travelled too far down the runway to stop before the barrier. The Hawk T.1 hit the barrier at the bottom of the south east runway before coming to a stop just before Cymyran beach.

Squadron leader Dave Williams told reporters:

There were no injuries at all and assessments are currently being made as to how to recover the aircraft.
