  • After a flight from Beromünster, the aircraft arrived in Colombier airport, with a pilot and a passenger on board. In Colombier, 17 skydivers embarked the airplane bound to Ecuvillens. While overflying the region of Gruyere, all 17 skydivers jumped. Few minutes later, while descending through Ecuvillens, the single engine aircraft crashed in a wooded area of Gibloux, in the Pont-en-Ogoz county. Both occupants were killed.
