Experts are trying to provide answers to the questions that have arisen from the crash of the single-engine aircraft in the sea area of Heraklion, Crete, which resulted in the death of the 68-year-old pilot.
In the first phase, based on the testimony of the surviving passenger and also from the fact that the plane did not crash, but went into the sea, the early conclusion is drawn that we did not have any serious damage to the aircraft. And this is because the single-engine aircraft, which has very good specifications, does not seem to be the cause of the plane crash since the suspicions of the authorities are directed at the faulty maintenance carried out in African countries.
The 68-year-old pilot suffered a health problem during take-off. The co-pilot tried to save him even in the air because he faced a heart problem. That he got out of the plane on his own, but didn’t make it in the end, shows that he still had strength, which turns the investigation into the health issue the unfortunate pilot faced.
After all, the single engine was not damaged, it floated after the beaching and both occupants got out of it before being picked up by members of the rescue crews who rushed to the scene.
