After take off, when turning left, 2 (or 3) F5 collided and 2 crashed : one in the wall near Bab Doukkala (Doukkala Gate) and the other on a free area along. A third one, less damaged, could reach Marrakesh-Menara airport.


I was standing on Mohammed V Avenue during the military parade.
I saw the smoke and the third plane flying over the avenue back to the airport.
Later on, I went and saw the hole in the old city wall. Nearby was a completely burnt car.
