- Harvey Dunmore was alone when his plane came down in a field in Yorkshire
Three men have been arrested for manslaughter after a young pilot was killed when his aircraft crashed at a Yorkshire airfield.
Harvey Dunmore, 21, was hailed a ‘one-man wonder’ by his bosses at WF Aviation after tragedy struck in July at Bagby Airfield, near Thirsk in North Yorkshire.
As well as being an accomplished pilot, he was also an engineer for several businesses based at the airfield.
North Yorkshire Police said: ‘We have made three arrests in connection with the light aircraft crash which occurred on Thursday 6 July at Bagby Airfield.
‘Three men aged 37,55, and 68 were yesterday arrested on suspicion of manslaughter.

‘The men were interviewed and have since been released under investigation.
‘The investigation is led by North Yorkshire Police with support from the Civil Aviation Authority.’
Mr Dunmore was alone in the cockpit when his plane came down in a field just before 8pm.
He began gliding at the age of 13 and his family have raised over £13,000 in his memory for a scholarship for aspiring young pilots.
WF Aviation said: ‘His talent was limitless and not many young lads could achieve what he had at the young age of 21.
‘He was a one-man wonder who could do multiple tasks at once, applied himself with vigor and enthusiasm to anything he started, and never gave up. He was reliable, a great friend to all, and always thinking of others.
‘His passion and enthusiasm for aviation was infectious. His sudden exit from the world has left a large hole in many of our lives. We will keep his memory alive in as many ways as we can.
‘Our thoughts are with his family and girlfriend who displayed admirable strength during his funeral service.’
