The Team were called to assist with a reported glider crash on the summit of Cross Fell.

The Team assembled just outside Kirkland awaiting transport to the crash site. However, the air ambulance managed to get on scene and evacuated the casualty to Newcastle without the need for Coastguard helicopter or Penrith Mountain Rescue Team support and the Team were stood down.

The following day four Penrith Mountain Rescue Team members guided the Air Accident Investigation Board to the crash site and assisted in the removal of the crashed glider by helicopter to land transport.
