Nine killed in Sweden plane crash

Nine people have been confirmed dead, after a plane crashed into an island close to the northern city of Umeå, Sweden.

Local media reported on Sunday that the plane which was carrying people for a parachute jump, left Umea airport shortly after 1.30pm and sounded an alarm at 2.12pm, before crashing. The plane crashed into Storsandskär island, just 2km from Umeå’s airport, in the delta of the Umeå river.

“The nine people on board are dead,” Region Vasterbotten municipality spokeswoman Gabriella Bandling said.

Witnesses claimed to have seen parachutists attempting to jump out of the plane, as it careened into the ground. The plane was a GippsAero GA8 Airvan – a small aircraft popular with skydiving operations that is designed to carry eight people including the pilot.
