I hope so too but it doesn't look good, wonder if the red flares spotted were anything to do with whats happened to him.

I wonder how this turns out financially for both Nantes and Cardiff. One of which paid £15m for a player who may never turn out for them because he died on the way...

Players are covered by insurance for the clubs, so Cardiff will likely be able to make an insurance claim should the worst come to pass.

Given the passenger numbers reported, it's a light aircraft. Survival on those isn't great as is before considering those waters in winter at night. The odds for a happy ending aren't good

Guernsey Police on Twitter are reporting a number of floating objects around near the Channel Islands, obviously they can't confirm yet if it is the plane.

Yeah light aircrafts during winter can be death traps.

Highly doubt they survived anyway.

Deals like this are covered against almost every eventuality. Nantes keep their money, Cardiff get it back and the family will be protected by life insurance.

Let's be honest, this isn't going to have a happy ending. It's so sad :sad:

Plane wreckage has now been found. I'm glad both families can now get some closure, and hopefully we can learn a bit more about why this happened.
