Cessna Crash near Ursel Airfield

Post by Jazzy » 02 Jan 2010, 23:40

Early this evening a Cessna crashed near Ursel Airfield. Pilot and Passenger got killed. I'll try to figure out more since I don't live far away.

We had rain around 17.00 till 18.00 and later snow.

If anyone has details let me know.

It seems the wreckage was found in the 'Drongengoedbos', which is right in the downwind leg if you fly a left hand circuit for runway 07... (winds in EBOS were 270, but this may not be a good indication)

Both pilots are said to be members of the Ursel Vliegclub. If the plane was a Cessna, it was not a plane from the club itself, as we own a fleet consisting of Pipers only.
