SR22 F-HAMP crash in Spain - Raid Latecoere

It could be the F-HAMP

RIP, very sad episode for the raid !
Looks like it was serious IMC and crash into terrain?

The paintwork shown on the door is correct for F-HAMP, but it could be quite a common Cirrus scheme.

Yes it was F-HAMP. The team had a website set up, in French.

Terrible to read their story and learn they crashed.
May their souls rest in Heaven.

My guess would be VFR into IMC.

The plan was to follow the coast line.
It looks like they took a very unfortunate shortcut.

United Kingdom

Anyone got the Alicante weather at the time ?

There is no way to go on that shortcut without getting into Class A that starts from the surface some points, so my guess they were flying IFR?
Weather is extreme in Alicante the last 2 days (storms/flooding)

The MEA and MVA is well above the altitude they were flying.
