Plane crashes into a forest in France, three victims
It was a few kilometers from the landing
During today's morning, Monday 28 September 2020, a single-engine plane crashed in France causing the death of three people, that is all occupants on board. The serious accident took place near Doubs, not far from the Swiss border (Bern and Geneva are not very far); the aircraft (registration N918SE) involved is a Cirrus SR-22 SE Turbo, which took off from Caen towards the Besançon-La Veze aerodrome. It was not long before landing (about 10 kilometers before the runway), when the aircraft lost altitude for reasons yet to be ascertained, crashing into a forest.
French gendarmerie arrived on the scene and could not help but ascertain the death of the three people, as the plane quickly caught fire. The identity of the victims is not yet known, the only rumors that are leaking from the transalpine media are those of a probable business trip of about 500 kilometers and which should have lasted three hours. Bad weather could have played a decisive role in the dynamics of the accident, as rain, mist and gray skies characterized the morning of the French town.
