A LIGHT aircraft with three Croatians on board crashed in a field close to Bratislava on the morning on December 10. None of the men in the Cessna 303 survived, the Sme daily wrote.

Experts said the weather was not safe for flying that morning. The aircraft attempted to land twice and crashed during its third attempt.

The Croatian airplane, with an experienced pilot and technician and one student on board, was on its way to a maintenance check-up.

The investigation will last several months and it will probably be more complicated than originally expected. Thieves robbed the car of the Croatian investigators who arrived in Slovakia on the evening of the crash. They stole cameras, computers and one navigation system, worth Sk175,000 (€5,300) in total.
