A parachute plane crash left 11 people dead in Belgium after the aircraft plummeted to the ground. The Christian Post shared the details on Oct. 20.
The small plane had an instructor and a team of skydivers, and the pilot seemingly lost control of the plane. The aircraft went into a nosedive, and everybody on board died. The plane had taken off just 10 minutes earlier from the Temploux Aerodome.
Some of the skydivers attempted to jump from the plane prior to the crash, but nobody managed to survive. Experts indicate there simply was not enough time for them to deploy their parachutes before hitting the ground. Witnesses indicate that part of the plane's wing fell off just a few minutes after take-off, and things went out of control from there.
The Associated Press via ABC News reports that the group was together to celebrate a birthday. The identities of those killed in the parachute plane crash have not been identified. It seems the plane and pilot had already flown more than a dozen trips earlier in the day without incident. The parachute plane crash cause is under investigation.
