Circumstances:
The single engine airplane operated by Skydive Umeå departed Umeå Airport at 1333LT on a local skydiving mission. It climbed to an altitude of 13,000 feet in relative good weather conditions. While the skydivers attempted to jump, the pilot lost control of the airplane that nosed down and entered a dive. In a vertical position, the airplane spiraled to the ground and lost part of its right wing before crashing in a wooded area located on the Storsandskär Island, about 2 km southeast of Umeå Airport. The aircraft was totally destroyed upon impact and all nine occupants were killed. Five days after the accident, on July 19, EASA published an Emergency Airworthiness Directive indicating that the airplane suffered structural failure and that a wing may have detached from the aeroplane prior to the accident, but, at this time, the root cause of the accident cannot be confirmed. For these reasons, all operations of the GA8 Airvan have been prohibited from July 20 for 15 days.
