Three killed in another Swiss light plane crash
Three people have been killed in another light aircraft crash in Switzerland. The plane had taken off from Sion airport at about 1pm yesterday. It came down in the Sanetsch Pass near Les Diablerets.
Valais police say they can’t yet determine why the plane crashed – but noted although the skies were clear, there were some winds.
The plane was a Piper Warrior and was registered at an aviation club in Biel.
This latest crash marks the third light aircraft disaster in recent weeks. On Tuesday one went down in Lake Constance, killing two and the week before that another went down in Graubünden, killing three. One survivor remains in hospital.
