PLANE lovers will be able to see the front section of an aircraft driven through Worcestershire this week.

The 17ft front section of a Jetstream 41, which is a regional turboprop, is being moved from Powick to East Sussex on Friday (April 21).

People often catch this plane flying quite clearly because regional turboprops fly at a lower altitude than jets.

The plane was moved from Malvern to Powick on Wednesday (April 12) and organisers said people were fascinated by the plane. 

The plane will be driven by Duncan Halford, chairman of UK Heritage Aviation, to its destination on a trailer.

He is planning to set off at about 2.30pm.
