A lot of German aeroclub aircraft around the Adriatic this past week, and yes, the are often fully loaded with people for these trips. Flying to Croatia has become sort of a classic for German private pilots on the long ascension weekend.

A little bit of weather down there today, but nothing too bad. Actually, I think I heard them on the radio approaching Split when I was flying the Croatian coast the other way (northbound“) in glorious weather on the 26th.

BTW, the location of the crash is very close to the Plitvice lakes. They possibly made a detour to see them. Another possibility is that the route was also chosen in anticipation of having to circumnavigate the Alps to the east due to weather today. There is a published VFR route where they crashed. Mountains up to 6000 feet in the area.

Very sad to hear.

Lots of weather moving through there today. Radar video:

Not untypical unfortunately for a flight over some holidays on the way back with a “fixed” return time…
