Prosecution over the plane crash which killed footballer Emiliano Sala on a flight to Cardiff.
DAVID HENDERSON, a British pilot, enlisted David Ibbotson to take his place by asking him if he fancied a weekend in the French city of Nantes to return Sala to Cardiff after landing a multi-million-pound transfer to the city.
On the return flight, both men were killed after the plane crashed just north of Guernsey on January 21, 2019. Sala’s body was found a month later, but the body of Ibbotson has never been found.
It was thought Henderson was also on the flight, as he had used his bank details to book the flight.
The Civil Aviation Authority is charging Henderson with acting in a “reckless/negligent” manner and being involved in the use of a commercial plane that was involved in a crash.
Henderson appeared at Cardiff Magistrates Court in September and was released on bail until October 26 where he will stand before the Crown court.
