A Robin DR.400/180R Remorqueur crashed during takeoff at Bagnères De Luchon Airfield (LFCB). The plane was towing a glider.
The young pilot in training was seriously injured.

The plane was towing a glider," explained one witness. At one point, I saw the glider was slightly above the plane. It stalled and plunged to the ground". This witness will be the first to rush to the plane to rescue the young pilot. A version confirmed by the president of the Luchon flying club. "The aerology was a little strong this afternoon, that perhaps played a part in the accident."
