Emiliano Sala’s Death: Pilot’s Widow Finally Comes Out of Silence A Year After the Tragic Plane Crash

The helicopter crash had cost the young footballer Emiliano Sala and also the pilot David Ibbotson. The body of the latter not having finally been found, her wife Nora recently took the initiative to deliver his feelings on this affair.

We still remember that night of January 21, 2019 when the helicopter that transported the young Argentinian footballer Emiliano Sala to the city of Cardiff in England disappeared in a terrible plane crash.

Emiliano Sala played at FC Nantes and was to be transferred to Cardiff, England. A few minutes after the plane took off, he had left an overwhelming message to his loved ones via WhatsApp:


“ I am currently on the plane. It seems to be falling apart. I’m going to Cardiff. Hell, we can start tomorrow afternoon training, guys and my new team. […] If in an hour and a half there is no news from me, I don’t know if they will send someone to pick me up because they won’t find me, but you will know. I’m so scared… . 

It was on February 8 that his body was found in the wreckage of the plane in the English Channel. Confirmation of his death had deeply affected his family. On April 26, 2019, his father Horacio Sala passed from life to death.

More than a year after this tragedy, Nora, the pilot’s wife, gave an interview to Good Morning Britain : “We hope to understand what happened this weekend, because we keep asking ourselves : And if, and if ‘… What the media forget is that David’s body was not returned to us, it is impossible to grieve, ”she said.

While now all the clues point to the responsibility of the pilot, his wife defends the memory of her husband :

“No matter what people say or do, we know how Dave was and in that we family members make us stronger .”
