Photos : Plane crash in Fernelmont, Belgium
19 October 2013
A plane carrying parachutists for a skydiving trip crashed in Fernelmont, Belgium on October 19th 2013, killing all 11 people aboard.
Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo quickly issued a statement confirming the crash and saying his thoughts are with the families of the victims.
Minutes after the aircraft took off from a small airfield near the city of Namur, witnesses saw part of a wing break off, sending the plane into a spiraling nosedive and crash in a field close to Fernelmont town.
