A Canadair CL-215, twin-engine, water-bomber aircraft crashed on Saturday in Galicía near the Portuguese border, killing the pilot.
One week after the news of the Spanish helicopter accident taking place and one whole week of desperate hope, the bodies of the three crew were found inside the wreckage on the seabed.
Despite the Minister of Defence’s assertion that the crew from the crashed Super Puma had been rescued by a Moroccan fishing boat, nobody has any idea where they are. Consequently the search has restarted.
Around 13.00h today a Spanish military transport aircraft – an Airbus A400M – came down just outside the provincial airport of San Pablo near Sevilla.
The two occupants were killed when a helicopter loaded with hashish crashed into a pylon whilst attempting to evade the Guardia Civil.
