Copter crash kills British millionaires
by UPI

HARROGATE, England - British millionaires Paul and Linda Spencer died Sunday when their helicopter crashed in Yorkshire near their 5-star hotel.

Paul Spencer, 43, and Linda Spencer, 59, died instantly when their recently purchased Gazelle helicopter crashed with Paul Spencer at the controls, the Mail on Sunday reported.

Linda Spencer owned Country Baskets, a chain of craft wholesalers with revenue of about $34 million, and her husband was managing director.

The couple had just received the helicopter, and some experts said the crash may have been caused by Paul Spencer's limited piloting experience and the blustery conditions, the newspaper said.

The Spencers were staying at the Rudding Park Hotel, a resort and golf course where former U.S. Presidents Bill Clinton and George H. W. Bush have been guests.
