Seven Fatally Injured In Mid-Air Collision Over Mallorca

A Helicopter Collided With An Ultralight Airplane Over The Island

A helicopter and an ultralight airplane collided in mid air over the Spanish island of Mallorca over the weekend, resulting in the fatal injury of all seven people on board both aircraft.

The BBC reports that the helicopter, identified as a Bell 206 Long Ranger on a sightseeing flight, had a German family of four on board, including two children. The aircraft was being operated by the German firm Rotorflug being flown by an Italian pilot. The type of fixed-wing airplane was not specified. It was being flown by a Spanish man carrying a friend as a passenger

Rotorflug said in a statement issued Sunday that the cause of the accident is "totally unclear."

Both aircraft caught fire as a result of the collision, according to the report. The wreckage came down on farmland near Inca, a tourist destination on the northern part of the island.

Visibility was reportedly good at the time of the accident.
