English version

Here is a link to the story in English
A Cessna 650 crashes after take off from Rome Ciampino David Cenciotti’s weblog - the most visited Italian Aviation Blog
I am in Italy at the moment and it has been on tv here quite a bit. Only the two pilots on board, going to Bolgona to collect a liver and a medical team.
The wreckage is over a very wide area, and all quite small pieces. It is said there was a storm at the time and lightning seen and then a bang as it happened.

Exploded ???

Man that is strange ...
Here is a copy of the doc ....

Le vittime. Le due persone a bordo si chiamavano Alfredo Lanza (51 anni) e Valerio Simeone (35 anni). Erano entrambi nati a Roma. Lanza era il comandante del piccolo velivolo da turismo mentre Simeone ne era il pilota.

L'aereo era diretto a Bologna per imbarcare una equipe medica del policlinico Sant'Orsola-Malpighi, che avrebbe dovuto essere portata a Cagliari per l'espianto degli organi a una persona deceduta.

The vistims 2 persons on board, athe names (Omited) from Rome. Pilot and FO.
They where heading to Bologna to pick up a medical team from a well known Clicnic and take them to Cagliari to recover the organs of a deceased donour.

My most sincere condolences ....
We have to keep and eye on this one and see what the reason was for the explosion ... still cannot belive it ...

Keep it safe ...

Very sad, and may turn out to be very worrying if a lightning strike caused the reported explosion.
Condolences to the crew's families.

The Italian investigative agency ANSV claimed a criminal inquiry into the Feb 7 crash of a Cessna 650 Citation III outside Rome is impeding its own investigation into the accident. Italian law authorizes criminal prosecutors to take precedence in accident investigations and they have seized the FDR and CVR. The ANSV said that it fears continuing delays in its investigation would have serious repercussions on aviation safety efforts both on a national and international level. The U.S. NTSB has requested a copy of the data from the Rome accident, but ANSV is unable to comply with the request because they can't get the data themselves.
