Private plane crash- 2 British men die NE

Just heard sad news that a small private Piper plane which had taken off at Colombier (Neuchatel airport) crashed just a few miles away in Grandson near Yverdon on Friday. Both British men died- one 40 years old lived in Neuchatel, the other, 29 who was piloting the plane it seems, in the UK.

Does anybody here know who this Neuchatel inhabitant was, no details given in the local paper today. Sad news.

Nope- my post was edited and moved, and links attached by a Moderator.

As I read the local papers and realise that many ex-pats do not, I put some of the events or news here for info in case it might be of interest to a few.

What does VVVVVVVVVVVVVV mean btw?

As we are an ex-pat community with many Brits, I did wonder if the man from Neuchatel was known to us on EF.
