An inquest has re-opened in Leamington Spa into the deaths of five people who were killed following a mid-air collision four years ago.
Brian Normington, 70, from Leamington, was at the controls of his KR2 kit plane when it collided with another aircraft on approach to Coventry airport in August 2008, causing one of its engines to explode.
The pilot of the other plan, Sophie Hastings, 28, from Derbyshire, was also killed - along with three other passengers.
The evidence will be considered by a jury. The court will hear from fifteen witnesses during proceedings expected to last two weeks.
The jury has reached its verdicts in the case of five people who died in a crash between two planes over Warwickshire four years ago.
The inquest into a mid-air plane crash four years which killed five people has started today.
