Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The Robin DR.400/140B Dauphin 4 impacted open field terrain under unknown circumstances near Saint-Pathus, Seine-et-Marne. The airplane was destroyed and the four people onboard were fatally injured.

Three student pilots, accompanied by their instructor, each carried out in turn a leg of a triangular navigation between the aerodromes of Lognes, Le Touquet and Beauvais as part of training with a view to obtaining a license.
During the last leg to Lognes, and shortly after they had flown over Le Plessis-Belleville Airfield, a Great Cormorant struck the left wing of the aircraft. The collision significantly degraded the aerodynamic performance of the aircraft. It also invalidated the airspeed displayed on board. The instructor, who probably took over the controls, probably tried to minimize the rolling of the aircraft. However, the aeroplane, which had become very difficult to control, rolled to the left then nose-down before colliding with the ground.
