The flight is understood to have been a Fathers Day present

A 14 year old girl, together with her father and her uncle, died when their plane crashed on Tuesday lunchtime after taking off from the Muxtamel airfield. The crash took place in an adjacent olive field and all three were killed instantly.

The causes are still unknown although early indications point to either a mechanical failure or fuel problem, which would have forced the aircraft, piloted by the uncle, to attempt an unsuccessful emergency landing. The incident has caused deep dismay in Ibi, since the father and daughter lived in the town, while his uncle resided nearby in Alicante.
