At approximately 5pm on 30 June 2007 a Eurocopter AS350 chartered for the French Grand-Prix took off from Magny-Cours with four passengers on board.  The helicopter stopped to refuel at Nevers and was then seen heading north in the direction of Sully-sur-Loire before it headed east over a forest.  The French manufactured helicopter was seen making a left turn followed by a right turn from which it couldn’t recover.  The helicopter crashed into trees killing the pilot and two passengers and severely injuring the remaining two onboard.  

Our Aviation team represents the family of one the passengers who died and is investigating the cause of this tragic accident.  The case is being litigated in Paris.
