2 people were killed in the crash of a light plane in Egypt


The Ministry of Civil Aviation said that a light aircraft had crashed upon landing at the Egyptian El Gouna Airport on the Red Sea coast, killing the two pilots on board.

A spokesman for the Ministry of Civil Aviation, Bassem Abdel Karim, said the two-seater private tourist plane registered with Sky Sports Airlines was on a test flight when it crashed.

The Egyptian Attorney General and the Ministry of Civil Aviation have opened investigations to assess the cause of the crash.

Egypt has had a checkered aviation history in recent years.

In November 2015, it bombed a Russian airliner, killing all 224 people on board.

In May 2016, an EgyptAir plane carrying 66 people from Paris to Cairo crashed in the Mediterranean Sea.
