The police have confirmed that one person was killed after a Cessna 210M Centurion crashed into a cliff face on the Ilse of Man.  

It is believed that the deceased person was the pilot and that no other people were aboard the flight on July 17, 2023.  

According to the Isle of Man Constabulary the light aircraft collided with the cliff face at Bradda Head, Port Erin in the south of the island, which lies to the west of England in the Irish Sea. 

Footage captured after the Cessna crashed showed large plumes of dark smoke rising from the cliff side.  

Sadly, on July 18, 2023, police confirmed that as a result of the crash a person had died but officers would not be releasing any further information about the victim while the investigation continued.  

It is understood that the Isle of Man Civil Aviation Administration (IOMCAA) are assisting in what has been described as a “multi-agency” operation. 

“We would like to extend our condolences to the family at this deeply upsetting time. The family are being fully supported by specially trained officers as the investigation into the circumstances of what occurred continues,” the police said in a statement. 

Offices confirmed the water and air space around this site will remain closed until at least July 21, 2023.
