Aircraft that killed two people on Almada beach ‘had no engine power’

A report from the Office of Aircraft Accident Prevention and Investigation states that the instructor of a Cessna 152, “made several attempts to start the engine” but was unsuccessful after it had cut out just minutes after taking off, later killing two people on the Costa da Caparica beach in Almada, south of Lisbon, where it made an emergency landing.

The engine had stopped four minutes after take-off, after the aircraft “was hit by a very strong upward current.”
