Spanish Tourists Die on Tourist Flight
On May 24, 2013, a privately owned Cessna 172 had just taken off from Son Bonet de Marratxi airfield, failed to gain altitude and crashed in a field.
There were three passengers from Spain aboard–22 and 26 year old men and a 36 year old woman–and the pilot; only the 22 year old Argentinean pilot survived. The pilot was badly injured.
The plane normally offered tourists flights around the Balearic Islands.
The accident is under investigation
