Plane crashes into alley in Bursa, Turkey, 2 dead

A single-engined aircraft crashed into an alley in the northwestern province of Bursa, Turkey killing two pilots and causing panic in the region.

According to local sources, the trainer plane flown by a pilot trainee and his assistant crashed at 3.05 p.m. between apartments in the Bağlarbaşı neighborhood in the Osmangazi district.

Residents rushed out of their homes into the street following the crash, and smoke billowed from the site, according to video footage from the neighborhood.

The cause of the crash was said to be a “technical breakdown,” though the investigation is ongoing.

“Nobody from the neighborhood was injured,” a local journalist said, quoting officials from the governor’s office.

It took some 20 fire brigade trucks that reached the scene to put the fire out.

“Two buildings and two vehicles have been completely burned,” said Yakup Canbolat, the governor of the city.

“We know the names of those killed, but we will not announce their names before we inform their families,” Canbolat added.

Canbolat said an investigation would be launched, adding that the cause of the crash was likely to be a technical fault.
