Sweden grounds EADS CASA fleet after fatal crash
After losing four crewmen in an October 26 crash, the Swedish Coast Guard grounded its two remaining EADS CASA C-212 patrol planes.
The third C-212 crashed during a fly-by at the Skanör-Falsterbo Coast Guard facility, sinking into a canal with the loss of all on board, Flightglobal.com reports.
The plane was on a "routine patrol flight," according to the report.
Eyewitnesses said that a wing fell off the plane before it crashed. Swedish Coast Guard authorities could not confirm the accounts pending recovery of the wreckage.
