(ANSA) – CREMONA, 08 JUN – It could have been a wrong maneuver during take-off, probably at the moment of the first turn, the cause of the stall that this morning caused an ultralight to crash in Torlino Vimercati, in the province of Cremona. This is what emerges from the first investigations on the dynamics of the accident.
The pilot, a 74-year-old from Peschiera Borromeo, was unable to regain control of the Eurofly Fire fox and crashed from a height of thirty meters into agricultural land.
Rescued by the 118 operators and then transported by helicopter to the Maggiore hospital in Cremona, he is hospitalized in serious condition; the prognosis is reserved. In the crash he suffered head and facial trauma, as well as multiple fractures to his lower limbs.
The accident occurred shortly after 8. The ultralight had left a few seconds from the Punto Volo training camp: the time to get up and the 74-year-old Eurofly, a member of the structure, crashed. The alarm launched from the air pole was immediate: when the rescuers arrived, the pilot was conscious.
The dynamics and causes of the crash are being examined by the carabinieri; the semi-destroyed ultralight, recovered and transferred to a hangar, will be subjected to all the necessary technical checks in the next few hours. (HANDLE).
