Pictures show final moments of doomed private jet

ITV News has obtained pictures of a private jet moments before it crashed into a car auction site, killing all four people on board.

Plane spotter Geoff Pierce was photographing the Phenom 300 when it came in to land at Blackbushe Airport in Hampshire.

He said the aircraft touched down around three-quarters of the way along the runway and was going too fast to stop.

Mr Pierce told ITV News: "There's a small embankment at the end of the runway and it careered over that and then carried on and ploughed into the parked cars and vehicles.

"Immediately there was towering black smoke coming up. It was almost surreal how it happened.

"It was going too fast to stop comfortably. We can only assume that the pilot had no choice other than to land it rather than take off and do another circuit."
