A shocking and numbing event for the families involved which is still to be concluded of course as the pilot, David Ibbotson, has yet to be found.

Such a tragic course of events. In the football world never mind daily lives, no one ever goes about their normal business and expect the worse to happen

Sala’s family may now have some closure, but I hope that the pilot’s body gets discovered too. His family must be going through the worst emotions too.

May both unfortunate victims be laid to Rest In Peace

Felt sure it'd be the pilot Ibbotson they'd bring up...dunno why..

Makes you wonder why they both weren't in the fuselage and what actually went on in the last seconds

Will a plan that size have a black box?

Read on another thread that the Pilot hadn’t flown in ages and was also only a Daytime flyer.

Most propably would not have a black box.

Ten young lads dead in a fire at a Brazilian club this morning. Football is going through a tough time.

Very sad indeed. You wouldn't get me on one of those small single engine planes after this. Single engine planes flying over water at night should be outlawed. You have such a small chance of survival if anything goes wrong. Hopefully something is learned from this tragedy at least.

The shots of the wreakage published hinted at rear of plane. It could be the case is went down nose first and where pilot was was wreaked and he may never be found.

They are lucky to get Sala's body back at all imo.
