Three people died in the crash of their small tourist plane on Friday near Dijon, we learned from the firefighters.
The aircraft, which was carrying only the three victims, crashed for a still unknown reason not far from a runway at Darois aerodrome, north of Dijon, the same source said. The plane landed in the middle of the afternoon in weather conditions made relatively complicated due to a rain shower, according to the first observations.
It belongs to a flying club in Etampes, in Essonne and was part of a journey of five aircraft from Etampes, which landed yesterday in Nancy, according to information from the daily Le bien public. “Three aircraft were to leave this Friday for Essonne, but one of them would have deviated from its flight plan and would have ended up in Côte-d’Or”. A judicial inquiry and an administrative inquiry have been opened.
