Teenagers killed in mid-air crash named

Two teenage cousin air cadets and two pilot instructors who died in a mid-air plane collision have been named. Nikkita Marie Walters, 13, and Katie-Jo Davies, 14, were being taken on a half-hour "flight experience" with instructors Hylton Price, 63, and 24-year-old Andrew Marsh when the two aircraft they were in crashed above sand dunes. It is thought the twin-seater propeller Grob Tutor aircraft clipped wings before tumbling from the sky near the M4 motorway and a mainline railway line at Kenfig Nature Reserve, Porthcawl, on the South Wales coast. Despite reports one person jumped out of a plane before it fell to the ground, police found four bodies in the wreckage. They had set off on the round trip from RAF St Athan, in the Vale of Glamorgan, for a taste of life with the RAF. The planes came down at two separate sites, spreading debris across a wide area. The families of Nikkita and Katie-Jo said they were "devastated" by the girls deaths.
