Four people were confirmed dead at the scene. The aircraft are believed to have come from the Wycombe Air Park, which is about 20 miles from the crash site.

According to the spokesman, a fire brigade drone has been launched over the fallen wreckage looking for any survivors.

In 2011 Bucks New University aviation student Carly Beattie, 21, was flying in a Cessna 152 with her brother Daniel, 24, when the plane nosedived, hit a tree and crashed into a swamp near Blue Cypress Lake, Florida.

She said it was "too early to tell" what might have caused the crash.

A spokesman for Thames Valley Police said: 'Officers are now at the scene of an air accident near the village of Waddesdon near Aylesbury.

Police and air accident investigators are continuing the hunt for clues as to why the helicopter and two-seater plane collided over Buckinghamshire. "Fire and ambulance services are also in attendance and preservation of life is first priority".

Emergency services were called to the scene near the village of Waddesdon, which is home to Waddesdon Manor, an estate managed by the Rothschild Foundation, a family charitable trust.

On Saturday, investigators from the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) were seen carrying bags of debris in clear plastic bags.

Thames Valley Air Ambulance were also scrambled.

The Cessna 152 involved was built in 1982 and owned by Airways Aero Associations, based at the Wycombe Air Park.

Road disruptions around Waddeson are expected for the rest of the day.

Sources said that it was believed there were multiple casualties, believed to be fatalities.

A former trainee pilot who knew Mr Green described him as "kind and cheerful man".

Wreckage from both aircraft plunged out of the sky and landed in the estate grounds of historic Waddesdon Manor near Winchendon, Buckinghamshire.

He had been working nearby when he heard a "horrendous noise".

He said two men came running towards him from the woods shouting, "did you see it, did you see it?"
