A Brit Air CRJ100 carrying 21 passengers and three crewmembers crashed onto a small road and caught fire some 2,500 feet short of the runway at Brest-Guipavas Regional Airport in Brittany on the night of June 22, leaving the 53-year-old pilot dead and three others injured. Flight AF 5672 was a scheduled run from Nantes to Brest. At press time no obvious cause appeared forthcoming, but investigators have recovered the flight-data recorder from the wreckage of the 50-seat regional jet. Preliminary weather reports indicated storm clouds at 2,000 feet and visibility about half a mile.
