Spanish champion aerobatic pilot killed in Velez-Malaga air crash

A PLANE crash near the Real Aeroclub Veleño in Velez-Malaga has left one dead and another seriously injured.

The Yak-52 aerobatic plane crashed on Friday, at 13:50 hours onto a mango farm, a little more than ten meters from a rural housing and just a mile from the runway.

Pilot Javier Fernandez, a prominent businessman from Granada, 52, was killed instantly, and his Brazilian friend, 50, died last night in Axarquia hospital.
