Pilot David Ibbotson would be the Argentine player: Emiliano Sala on January 21, from France to Wales, so he could train with his new club Cardiff City. So far it never came. The plane crashed in the English Channel and both Sala and Ibbotson came to the accident.
Which the plane crashed is still unknown. What has become clear after investigation, the AAIB according to The Guardian: pilot Ibbotson asked for a reduction to - most likely - clouds to avoid. That decline, however, was never used.
a Few minutes after his request, threw the plane hundreds of meters, maybe more than a kilometre, down. This happened in a span of twenty seconds, after Ibbotson his Piper Malibu 180-degree left turn.
The wreck of the aircraft was eventually found in thirty meters of the place where the last radar signals are collected, when Sala and the pilot is on 488 m height flew. The investigators from AAIB will assume that the device almost vertically down collapsed.
