In their final report published this Friday, the investigators believe that the pilot lost control of the aircraft during a maneuver probably intended to avoid bad weather. Pilot David Ibbotson, whose body was never found, was also “likely” to have been poisoned by carbon monoxide.

The plane crash cost the footballer and the pilot their lives on January 21, 2019. Emiliano Sala was to join the Cardiff City club after wearing the colors of the Nantes canaries for four years.
