In the place there are still many remains of the plane, a Cessna 172 Skyhawk

Sierra Bermeja: the remains of a 1998 plane crash in a place that is difficult to access

Spain is a very mountainous country, and its orography has been related to not a few air accidents, including one that occurred in 1998.

On Tuesday, December 8 of that year, a Cessna 172N Skyhawk plane, with German registration D-EEYH and which was making a tourist flight over the coastal area of Malaga and the Rock of Gibraltar, crashed in Sierra Bermeja, near the town of Casares (Málaga). The sky was clear, except for some cloudy intervals in the vicinity of Gibraltar, according to the report about the accident (see PDF).

The aircraft impacted with its right wing against a large rock at the top of the mountain, at a height of between 800 and 1,000 meters. The plane was face up, with the engine started about 20 meters from the fuselage. The plane was located around 8:50 a.m. the next day, along with the only survivor. Two of the three occupants died in the accident.

My favorite Youtube channel, Aventuras Entresierras (if you haven't subscribed yet, I'll I recommend that you do so), today he published an interesting video showing the crash site and the abundant remains of the plane that are still there:

You can see here some captures of the video. The route begins in a wooded area with a peaceful aspect.

The views of Sierra Bermeja are spectacular, but the appearance of the mountain is an announcement of what the rest of the way will be like.

The end of the route is a mountaineer's nightmare, full of rocks and pebbles and no path to walk on normally.

One of the first remains of the plane found by the explorers of Aventuras Entresierras. Many more are seen in the video: the wings, the fuselage, the drift, the seats and the blade of a propeller, among other things. Rarely do you see so many remains of a plane crash at the site where it happened, but it is not surprising considering how inaccessible that place is.
