Speaking after visiting the site the DUP MLA said, "This was a tragic incident which has plunged two families into grief. My thoughts are with them at this difficult time, and with all those associated with the Flying Club.

The airfield is part of daily life in Newtownards. It is a valuable and busy facility used by people from a wide area. People are shocked by what has happened and the thoughts are with all those affected.

There will obviously be a detailed investigation carried out and that will help shed light on what exactly occurred in this particular incident."
