A Tecnam P2002 Sierra (Spanish assembled) crashed nose down during an instructional flight near San Javier -Los Garranchos Airfield (LELG)
Both pilots were killed and the aircraft was destroyed.

According to witness statements, after takeoff the aircraft made a 180º turn and made a pass over the runway in the opposite direction to takeoff. It then began a steep climb until it lost speed and began to fall with an almost vertical attitude, in a gentle turn, finally impacting the ground.

Upon impact, a fire started, which reached high intensity and affected all the wreckage, except for the left wingtip.
