Accident near Madrid

https://www.elmundo.es/madrid/2019/0...f0b8b45cd.htmlThe two occupants of a plane have died today in the morning in the municipality of Quijorna to crash the plane against a rural road in the town, according to 112 and the Civil Guard Command. The deceased are the instructor of 30 years and her student, of Afghan nationality and of 26 years. The aircraft was owned by the company Quality Fly and had left on a practice flight half an hour before the base of Cuatro Vientos, in the neighborhood of Aluche. The first hypothesis suggests that the device collided in the air with an ultralight that also was flying around the area at about 300 meters altitude. After the accident, the plane rushed to the ground and the ultralight aircraft could land without difficulty in the vicinity. The pilot has been unharmed. Agents of the Pegaso team of the Civil Guard and Civil Aviation technicians investigate the causes of the accident. At the time of the accident the visibility in the area was "very good and it was not windy so we thought that one of the two devices could have suffered some setback," said sources of the investigation. The flight instructor had at least two years working in the company and despite her youth had many hours of flight and quite experience. The deceased student was the second time that he was flying and had begun his instruction at the Quality Fly pilot school two months ago.
