Another accident in Savoie

A bad week for aviators in Savoie. On Thursday August 5th, in mid-afternoon, a Robin DR 400 crashed just outside the village of Saint-Colomban-des-Villards on the road up to the Col de Glandon. Three died in the crash. A fourth person got out of the plane, severely burned - and was helped by a passing cyclist.The plane took off from a flying-club in Loire-Atlantique and was heading to Sarlat in the Dordogne.. All four were of the same family: parents, son and daughter . The daughter survived and was helicoptered to a specialist burns-unit in Lyon.

Sounds like a bit of a detour. Loire-Atlantique to Sarlat goes nowhere near Savoie.

There were two reports in different papers. The first said the plane was from a flying-club in Loire-Atlantique destination Sarlat without saying it took off from L-A ( my assumption !) and the second said it took off from Annecy without any detail whether that was an intermediate stop. The family originated from E France.
