A 70-year-old pilot from Milton Keynes has been talking about his 'extraordinary escape' after he had to bail out of his glider above Cambridgeshire.
Things went horribly wrong for Andrew Preston when he collided with another glider above Little Paxton last Saturday. He's been telling Claire McGlasson about the moment he realised he was in trouble.
Andrew Preston was 5000 ft above the Cambridgeshire countryside when his glider was involved in a mid-air collision.
Pictures captured the moment he jettisoned the canopy, unclipped his harness and literally fell - headfirst - out of the glider.
Seconds later his parachute opened.
Instead Andrew landed in a wheat field at Little Paxton in St Neots A lucky escape until he realised he was in the path of a combine harvester.
