A black day for private flying in France

An instructor and two students died in an accident in the Isere and a father, his two children and the pilot giving them an air experience flight were killed when the Robin DR400 they were in crashed in the Gironde.

From your description, it sounds like a mid-air collision involving two different aircraft: one on an instructional flight, and one on a sight-seeing flight. Is that correct?

Regardless, it was a tragedy for all involved and their loved ones.

R.I.P.

Indeed two distinct accidents. Sad day, compounded by kids being involved.
