Three Die in Small Plane Crash

Published tisdag 17 oktober 2006 kl 11.22

Three Swedes have died after a small plane flying from Berlin to Sweden disappeared from radar and crashed into the Baltic sea on Monday night.

Swedish, Danish and German rescue teams mounted air and sea operations to try to find the aircraft, but the search was called off in the middle of the night.

Officials say there’s no hope of finding the three men alive.

The Austrian-registered plane was beginning its descent to Sturup airport, near the southern city of Malmö, when it was seen plummeting on the radar. The 42 year old pilot and the passengers, who were 66 and 76, were all members of a flying club in Borås, near the west-coast city of Gothenburg.
