Plane Crash In Netherlands - Martinair

Thu Aug 15, 2002 2:33 am


I just saw on the news a small aircraft of Martinair has crashed.

Yesterday I was doing some spotting at Groningen Eelde Airport and I think I might have seen the plane which crashed. The plane I saw yesterday was registered PH-MLH and was doing ILS approaches mostly .

Unfortunately all people on board died.

Does anyone know the reg. of this particular aircraft?

my condoleances to their family.

regards, Arjan

Drie doden na neerstorten vliegtuigje in Vossemeer

DRONTEN - Er zijn drie doden gevallen bij een vliegtuigongeluk woensdagmiddag in het Vossemeer bij Dronten. Het tweemotorige lestoestel van Martinair, van het type Seminole, stortte rond 12.30 uur neer, aldus de politie.

De drie lichamen zijn geborgen. Het gaat om een instructeur en twee leerlingen. Duikers van de brandweer die naar het vliegtuigje zochten, troffen het toestel vrij snel aan. Het vliegtuig was op weg van Groningen naar Lelystad. Het werd om 13.00 uur in Lelystad verwacht. De oorzaak van het ongeval is nog onduidelijk. Het stortte van geringe hoogte neer.

Het ongeval vond plaats nabij de Vossemeerdijk, die is afgesloten.

hmm, seen that plane last winter. Probably even have a photo of it somewhere.
I't indeed PH-MLH, the only twin in the fleet.
I wish I were flying
