A twin engine plane has crashed near Ghisonaccia airfield, Corsica. According to witnesses, the pilot performed a go-round du to high wind, and the plane stalled on subsequent initial climb.
All four occupants, two men and two women, all french from Truchtersheim (Bas-Rhin), died in the crash.

During the approach to Ghisonaccia, the aircraft encountered extreme aerological conditions. A rapid change in the intensity of the wind and its direction relative to the longitudinal axis of the aircraft may have led to the sudden exceeding of the stall incidence.
The pilot probably lost control of the aircraft.
The low height of the loss of control associated with the aircraft's high rate of fall did not allow the pilot to fully regain control prior to the collision with the ground.
