Twenty people have been confirmed dead after a vintage aircraft crashed in the Swiss Alps yesterday.
The aircraft, a German-made, Second World War era Junker Ju-52, was carrying seventeen passengers, two pilots, and a flight attendant when it came down near the Piz Segnas mountain on the Swiss Alps on Saturday afternoon.
The plane belonged to JU-AIR, a company specialized in sightseeing flights using vintage aircraft. The Ju-52 involved in the accident had been manufactured in 1939.
This is the second air disaster in Switzerland in less than 24 hours.
Earlier on the same day, a small plane carrying a family of four crashed near the locality of Hergiswil. All those aboard perished.
