A man and a woman were aboard a Jodel D plane near Bucey-lès-Gy, France, on Sunday April 6 2014, when it crashed after taking off. The two people aboard the craft died on impact. The plane was at a low altitude when apparently, the pilot tried to turn around. The accident may have been due to a mechanical issue or pilot error. The female pilot lived in Beaune and her passenger was a Dole air traffic controller.

Société Avions Jodel is a French aircraft company that built planes of Sitka spruce from 1946 until the sixties. New Jodel planes are constructed only by hobbyists.
