PICTURES circulating online show the aftermath of a light aircraft crash next to CV-800 road in Alicante, which injured two people.

Two people onboard a Spanish light aircraft were injured after they crashed into an area of ​​vegetation next to the CV-800 regional road in Alicante on Wednesday, September 7.

The two passengers, men aged 55 and 63, both suffered separate head injuries and various bruises after they attempted to land at the Mutxamel Aerodrome, located in the municipality of Mutxamel, 10 Km North of the city of Alicante, in the heart of the Costa Blanca, which is accessible via the AP-7 motorway.

Following the crash-landing, the pilot and passenger were transported to the San Juan de Alicante hospital after emergency services were contacted.

Ivan Castro Palacios shared pictures of the down aircraft, alongside the caption: “#Aircraft accident this afternoon in the vicinity of #Mutxamel #LEMU Aerodrome, in #Alicante. The plane, model #Aerospool #SportCruiser and registration #ECZXG, was participating in the Vuelta Aérea a España. The 2 occupants were slightly injured. 07-09-22.”

The Alicante Firefighters Consortium wrote: “Light aircraft accident in Mutxamel this afternoon, fortunately, the pilot was able to get out unharmed by his own means. We went there to check the aircraft and ensure that there was no fire due to fuel spills and remove batteries 🚒🛫💪.”

The accident follows the tragic death of a 74-year-old man on the AP-7 in Benissa, Alicante.

The family of the man mourned his sudden death after he died at the wheel of his car.
