Several witness saw the accident: "We heard a plane and the engine cut. We thought of an exercise as we sometimes see, but it came down oddly. At 200 meters from the ground, the engine started again, the aircraft straightened, then the engine cut again. He was able to flatten himself from time to time, but fell back. He finally went down in free fall and slammed to the ground. From where we were, we heard the shock and realized that the pilots could not have survived. The plane caught fire immediately, in three minutes there was nothing left. We could not even try to rescue them. "
