2 killed in light aircraft collision over France.
« on: July 24, 2019, 05:44:32 PM »
Two people have died after a light plane they were travelling in collided mid-air with another aircraft in the south of France, said French authorities.
The crash took place at around 12.45pm on Wednesday over the high mountain Maddalena Pass on the Alpine border with Italy.

“The victims are two British men, aged 18 and 37 years old,” said a French regional government official.

The Alpes-de-Haute province official said the pilot of the first plane was injured in the crash at Pre-la-Font in the valley near Larche.

Both of the “recreational aircraft” were registered in England, and both had taken off from an airfield in Saint-Pons earlier today.
