Nigel Farage had a very lucky escape after his plane smashed into the ground after an election day stunt went wrong.
The accident happened as it was taking off again from Hinton to fly over Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.
Farage is being treated in hospital after chipping his spine, damaging his breastbone and breaking two ribs in the crash. The pilot, Justin Adams, is also being treated for his injuries.
He was hauled after the plane hit the ground at 70mph when a banner declaring 'Vote for your country, vote UKIP' became caught in its tail fin.
The impact was so strong that the engine broke off and the plane flipped over onto its roof.
Farage’s supporters rushed to the wreck and found their former leader moaning 'get me out'.
He was also heard to mutter 'I'm scared, I'm scared, I'm scared' as paramedics rushed to his aid.
Moments before the two-seater plane had taken off, he joked: 'I just hope the plane doesn't blow up and crash.'
Nigel Farage and Justin Adams are now recovering from their injuries in hospital.
We trust that Nigel will now appreciate that life is very precious. There is much more to life than just enriching yourself at the expense of others.
We wish the pilot a very speedy recovery.
And the same goes for our Nigel. We need him back on his feet as soon as possible.
Where would UKIP be without their Number One Clown and Crook? But Steve Harris may not agree!
We also need Farage fit and well to face ELCOM in the courts. There are many questions that he needs to answer. June 7th is the date to watch!
