A Yakovlev Yak-18 crashed today in Lens in northern France, killing the pilot and his passenger. The association Renaissance du Caudron Simoun indicated on its Facebook page that François Minard, one of its founders, was one of the two victims.

Our thoughts and prayers go to the family and friends of the two victims of this tragedy.
