Narrative:
On Saturday, May 8, 2021, at 18:02 local time, the Diamond DA20-A1 aircraft, registration EC-MOF, crashed into the ground shortly after making a go around after an attempted landing on runway 13 at Sabadell Airport (Barcelona).
The pilot had reported vibrations and no oil pressure in the engine while flying near the town of Sabadell. He requested an emergency landing at the airport and was authorized to land on runway 13. After making a circuit of runway 13, the altitude he reached over the runway was too high to be able to land. He flew over the entire length of the runway and requested to make a 180º turn to land in the opposite direction, that is, on runway 31. However, during the 180, the aircraft crashed into the ground about 200 m from threshold 31 outside the airport perimeter fence at the side of a railroad track.

The pilot was seriously injured and the aircraft was destroyed.
