S64 Crash

Recommended Posts

Bad news :


A S64 crashed in on a fire fighting mission in Corsica (France) this morning.

The crew (a french and a canadian) did not survived.

According to the french website (http://info.france2.fr/france/4076273-fr.php), it had some mechanical (?) problems and was going to land to a military base when the accident happened.

Was it a S64 from Canadian Air-Crane?
