Local councillor Eddie Fitzpatrick said the airfield had a long established reputation for parachuting.

All 16 made their jump from the craft.

"The plane was later located a number of kilometres from the airfield crashed in bogland".

Recall that in Spain crashed light aircraft, three of the victims.
