The accident occurred shortly before noon on Sunday. An Ultra light plane, a two-seat single-engine, crashed on the site of the waste of Saint-Just-Luzac, next to the airfield Marennes-Saint-Just-Luzac. The pilot would have missed its landing.
A witness who says the aircraft arrived too fast on the runway, wanted to go around but too late, the aircraft struck a tree. The pilot, the sole occupant, died instantly.
