Traffic was locked down at Brussels South Charleroi airport.

On Feb 9, 2013 at ten, a privately owned Cessna P210N Pressurized Centurion en route from Brussels to Lyon was taking off from Brussels South Charleroi Airport in Belgium in freezing fog when it ran into trouble.

The plane crashed beside the runway. A family of five, including three children, were aboard: a grandfather, his daughter, her three children age seven, six and two.

Police and a special crisis unit arrived on the scene.

Walloon Prime Minister Rudy Demotte (PS) and federal Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo (PS) offered condolences to the families of the victims.
