Ultra-Light Aircraft Missing Since Morning Takeoff


The Transportation Ministry reported, Sunday, that a Drifter-type ultra-light aircraft has been missing since the morning, when it took off in the Sharon region, northeast of Tel Aviv.

The ministry's announcement noted that evidence and testimony received after the takeoff led to a suspicion that the pilot, a partially-disabled student pilot, was trying to commit suicide.
