Celebrating the life of...
Hylton Price
( - 2009)
R.I.P. - RAF Instructor
Hylton Price

Neath-born, 63 year old Hylton Price was a retired wing commander who had been a former Phantom and Tornado jet pilot. Hylton was a graduate of Cardiff University, brought up in Swansea, but later settling in Bridgend. He retained a great love of the RAF, being a voluntary reserve. One of the activities he undertook was to take young Air Cadets on flying experiences to give them a taste of being airborne. It was on the morning of Wed 11-Feb-09 when two Grob trainer aircraft took off from RAF St. Athan in the Vale of Glamorgan - one piloted by Hylton and the other piloted by Flt Lt Andy Marsh. Each aircraft was carrying a young teenage cadet from Pontypridd ATC (Katie-Jo Davies and Nikkita Walters). About 1/2 hour into the flight, the two planes collided and crashed to the ground at the Kenfig Pool Nature Reserve near North Cornelly (approx 20 mies from St. Athan). Sadly both pilots and the two young cadets all lost their lives. I suspect we may never know what actually happened, there are strict guidelines regarding flying distances between aircraft, yet some witnesses on the ground that day claim they saw the planes performing aerobatic stunts that morning.
