Plane crash fatal for German businessmen

A SMALL, German passenger plane crashed on January 13 near Žilina, in northern Slovakia, taking the lives of three people, the daily SME reported.

Žilina Airport officials say the German pilot (74) was experienced and knew the airport. His passengers were employees of the German firm Neusiedler who were heading to visit the company SCP Ružomberok.

According to a representative of a real estate investment company from Žilina, the plane was supposed to land at the Dolný Hričov airport near Žilina at 1 p.m., the TASR news wire reported.

However, after the pilot decided to make a second circle above the airport, the control tower lost contact with him. A search was launched immediately and a police helicopter found the plane, a Piper 34.

Another small plane from Germany successfully landed at the airport two hours before the accident.
