The aircraft was in flames when help arrived.
The investigation into the circumstances of the tragedy was entrusted to the air section of Dijon (Côte-d'Or) and to the air transport gendarmerie brigade of Bâle-Mulhouse.
Benoît Villemin, mayor of Saône, a neighboring town, explains to France 3 that, “according to residents who called from the crash, they heard this small plane miss.
Then an explosion would have occurred ”.
