So Sad! Pilot May Not Have Been Qualified To Fly Emiliano Sala

An interim report into the tragic Emiliano Sala plane crash has suggested that David Ibbotson might 'not have been qualified' to have piloted the flight - and the Piper Malibu aircraft may not have had the correct permissions to make the journey.

Striker Sala died while flying between Nantes, France, and Cardiff following his £15million move to the Premier League club.

The plane crashed into the English Channel on January 21, sparking an operation to find the wreckage and the remains of the two people on board - with Sala's body identified while Ibbotson is still missing.


A report released by the air accident investigation branch on Monday suggested that Ibbotson might not have had the appropriate licence to fly the plane.

The report also suggested that the single-engine Piper Malibu plane, made in 1984 and had flown 6,636 hours, did not have permission to make the journey.

The report also gave further details of the last moments of Sala and Ibbotson.

It said that the aircraft took off and initially climbed to 5,500 ft. Later, the pilot requested a descent to remain in 'Visual Meteorological Conditions'.

It reads: "The last radio contact with the aircraft was with Jersey Radar at 2012 hrs, when the pilot asked for a further descent.

"The aircraft’s last recorded secondary radar point was at 2016:34 hrs... The wreckage of N264DB was subsequently found on the seabed about 30 metres from the position of the last secondary radar point recorded by the radar at Guernsey."

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
