The pilot of the light aircraft who became incapacitated while flying back to Sandtoft airfield during the evening of Tuesday 8 October resulting in an emergency landing at Humberside Airport was sadly pronounced dead last night.
Police are not treating the death as suspicious and as such a file will be prepared for the coroner in order to establish what led to the death of the pilot by way of an inquest.
Formal ID of the pilot is likely to take place later today.
