On 31 March, an EPIC LT (RA-2151G) single-engine turboprop private plane was operating a flight between Cannes-Mandelieu Airport, France and Egelsbach Airport, Germany. The aircraft, however, impacted an asparagus field in Erzhausen (close to Egelsbach Airport) under unknown circumstances.
The aircraft was destroyed by the post-crash fire, the wreckage was scattered over 20 meters, and the 3 occupants, one pilot and 2 passengers received fatal injuries. One of the Russian passengers was Natalia Fileva, co-owner of Russian S7 Airlines, chair of the S7 group and one of Russia’s wealthiest woman.
