The family of a grandfather from Leamington Spa killed in a mid-air collision have paid tribute to him.
Pilot Brian Normington, of Blackdown, was killed along with Harvey Antrobus, James Beagley, Sybille Gautrey and Sophie Hastings, who were carrying out an aerial survey on board a Cessna 402 when it collided with Mr Normington's home-built light aircraft in Brinklow, Warwickshire.
The 70-year-old grandfather was described by his family as "full of life and loved by all who knew him".
In a statement released by Warwickshire Police, his family said: "He was a much loved and adored husband, dad and granddad and will be greatly missed in our hearts and minds for ever."
Mr Normington, who had 20 years piloting experience, was a long-standing member of the Coventry-based Armstrong Whitworth flying club.
He was described by a friend as a "highly regarded pilot" with hundreds of hours flying experience.
The plane was a kit-built Rand KR-2.
