Circumstances:
The single engine airplane departed Cremona-Migliaro Airport in the morning on a local skydiving flight, carrying eight skydivers and one pilot. After the assigned altitude was reached, seven skydivers successively jumped. When the last skydiver attempted to jump, an unexpected situation occurred, maybe he collided with the aircraft when he evacuated the cabin. Out of control, the aircraft entered a spin and crashed in a cornfield located in Livrasco, about 2 km north of Cremona Airfield. Both pilot and skydiver were killed.

Circumstances:
The crew left Paris-Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport at 0254LT on a cargo flight to Bergamo on behalf of DHL Airways. Upon arrival, weather conditions were poor with thunderstorm activity, rain falls and wind. After landing on runway 28, the aircraft was unable to stop within the remaining distance, overran and went through the perimeter fence. It then cross a highway, lost its undercarriage and slid for 520 meters before coming to rest on a second road. While both crew members were unhurt, the aircraft was damaged beyond repair. It is believed that the crew landed long, with a touchdown point between 1,900 and 2,400 meters past the runway threshold (runway 28 is 2,934 meters long). After landing, the crew apparently decided to go around but while decelerating, the aircraft was unable to takeoff, overran and came to rest.

Circumstances:
The aircraft, owned by Skydive Toscana (aka Skydive Kalifornia) was involved in a local skydiving flight in Marina di Cecina Airfield. When the appropriate altitude was reached, six of the seven skydivers bailed out. When the seventh skydiver elected to jump, his parachute opened prematurely and was trapped on the tail of the Porter. The crew lost control of the aircraft that dove into the ground and crashed in a field. During the descent, the skydiver was able to activate his emergency parachute and was later found uninjured. Both pilots were killed.
