A sad day for all of us who have the pleasure to see this acrobatic Team in action with the Extra 300L.
Today the Pilot of Halcones Team ( N° 5 ) Eduardo Varas de la Fuente and the Mechanic Cristian García were doing a flight to verify the aircraft performance, when something happened and the aircraft crashed within the perimeter of the Quintero FACh base, and perished immediately. The accident is currently being investigated.
R.I.P. Eduardo and Cristian.
