Summary: On the 26th of July 2014, at 10:10 h (local time) an Ultralight Amphibian Device took off from runway 06 of Sparta airport, which was closed at the time, with one pilot and one passenger onboard. According to an eyewitness, when the device was at an approximate height of 80-100 meters, it performed a left turn of about 20° inclination. During the turn, a fluctuation to the engine revolutions was heard. The device started to lose height with a growing slope. While descending, with an inclination of about 60° relative to the ground, the noise of the ballistic parachute was heard, with the belts visible at a height of around 20 - 30 m. Immediately after that, the device got lost among the olive groves and hit the ground.
As a result of the impact both persons onboard were fatally injured and the device got totally destroyed.
