Swiss authorities plan to give more information on the crash in the Alps of an old-time propeller plane operated by a company that offers panoramic flights.
Police in southeastern Graubuenden canton (state) said Saturday that a several-seater plane had crashed on the Piz Segnas mountain above the Alpine resort of Flims. They didn’t immediately give information on casualties, but said Sunday that they plan a news conference in the afternoon.
Ju-Air, a Swiss company that offers flights with old-time Junkers Ju-52 planes, said one of its aircraft had been involved in the accident Saturday but no further information was available.
The Ju-52, a propeller plane, was manufactured between 1932 and 1952.
The Swiss daily Blick said the planes can accommodate 17 passengers and three crew.
