A C-152 airplane of the Portuguese Aero club of Torres Vedras performed yesterday an emergency landing on the crowded beach of São João da Caparica, next Lisbon, hitting and killing a fifty-six year old man and a girl of eight. On board of the Cessna aircraft with registration CS-AVA there were an instructor of a local school and a student pilot, who were questioned by local authorities that are investigating the accident.
