M-346 Jet Trainer Crashed Into Sea Off Dubai

The pilot lost control of the M-346 CM.X615 (Prototype 001) Advanced Jet Trainer shortly after taking off and it crashed into the sea three nautical miles from Palm Deira, Dubai, UAE. The two pilots ejected and both were picked up by the rescue crew. The M-346, piloted by Captain Giovanni Bingley, was heading to Riyadh in Saudi Arabia on its way back to Venegono Superiore (Varese) in Italy. The aircraft had departed from the Dubai Air Show in company with the first T-346A CS.X55144 for the Italian Air Force. The T-346A aborted the flight plan and returned to Dubai International Airport.
