Malta plane crash

Postby Kay » Mon 24 Oct 2016 11:12 GMT

I just heard on the radio that there'd been a plane crash - five dead - so I rushed to check out the BBC news online.

It was a small twin-prop aircraft bound for Libya.

The airport is closed until further notice.

I hope you're all safe.

Questions still remain as to what the French crew were actually involved in.

Interesting, David.

When I originally posted the BBC link there was hardly any news beyond reporting the plane crash and that the airport was closed. Since then they've updated the link a few times but with very little news. Your Times link has given the most information so far.
