6th June 2010 - Beech E55 Baron N554RB crashes in Menorca

 

A British man and his adult son died on Saturday 29th May 2010

when their plane crashed during a practice flight just hours

ahead of an air race on Spain's Menorca island, organisers said.

The two men were the only passengers on the plane, one of about

20 taking part in Air Race Menorca 2010, a spokesman for the

Royal Mahon Flying Club which organised the event told AFP.

The aircraft crashed and burst into flames about 100 metres

from the end of the runway of the club's aerodrome shortly after

taking off to join other planes that were to form an octagonal

pattern in the sky. The air race was called off following the accident.

The victims of the accident have lived on the
Mediterranean

island for years, according to Spanish media reports. The

aircraft had visited Jersey the day before the accident.
