PANIC has surfaced across a Welsh airport tarmac after a frightening plane crash caused a “massive explosion”.
A runway at Caernarfon Airport, Gwynedd has been brought to a standstill after the frightening crash generated a huge “fireball”.
Large teams of emergency service workers were called to the scene at 6.24pm local time — after reports of an explosion.
The plane was reportedly trying to land.
Another witness reportedly said the plane was “flying too fast” before it dramatically hit the tarmac.
During its crash landing, the onlooker said debris was “flying off” the aircraft, and “caught fire straight away”.
North Wales police are at the runway, dealing with the incident.
A cordon has now been set up around the airport, as emergency services continue to deal with the smoking aircraft.
Caernarfon airport — home to the HM Coastguard helicopters, operated by Bristow — operates training flights.
Welshpool air ambulance have been called to the scene, along with another smaller aircraft.
