The Piper PA-28-140 was conducting touch-and-goes at Cotswold Airport (GBA/EGBP), Kemble, Gloucestershire, U.K., when it veered off the left side of runway 26. It continued between two stored Airbus jetliners that were parked head to tail, hitting the nose landing gear of a Red Wing Airbus A321 (VP-BRM) with the right-hand wing tip. It crossed the A429 road and came to rest in a ditch. The three occupants were taken to a hospital.

A spokesperson for Wiltshire Police said: "Shortly after 10.30am today, we responded to reports of a light aircraft which appeared to have overshot the runway at Cotswold Airport, ending up in a ditch beside the A429. There were no reported deaths or serious injuries. The pilot and two passengers have been taken to hospital as a precaution. The Air Accident Investigation Branch has been informed. The road is likely to be closed for a number of hours to allow the removal of fuel and debris."

Multiple Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue crews were also sent to the scene but those on board the aircraft had “self rescued” before their arrival.

A spokesperson for Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue said: "We were called to the A429, Kemble at 10.41am this morning. Crews from Stratton, Cirencester and Tetbury attended the incident which involved a light aircraft which had overshot the runway – casualties had self-rescued prior to FRS arrival. The incident has since been scaled back, with just the one crew from Stratton remaining on scene for the arrival of Air Accident Investigation Branch for aircraft recovery."

South Western Ambulance Service sent out an update on Thursday night:

A spokesperson for the service said: "We sent two double-crewed land ambulances, an operations officer, a rapid response vehicle, a critical care car and an air ambulance. We have conveyed one patient to Great Western Hospital and one patient to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, both by land ambulance."
