A company prototype of the M-346, registration X617, had a technical problem, around 20 minutes after take-off from Turin-Caselle airport, that forced the only pilot on board to successfully eject from the aircraft. The pilot conditions are good.
The aircraft crashed in Val Bormida, between the provinces of Cuneo and Savona, without damage to people or properties.
Alenia Aermacchi has already set up an internal technical commission to investigate the accident.
