A few hours ago, a small plane crashed near Copenhagen killing all four on board. A few hours after it crashed, another plane in sweden crashed as well, though the Swedish story has not made the news yet.

Odd that two small planes in the same region, around the same time, both crash, anyone else got any news on this?

Well, last week 2 small planes in belgium crashed, noone got hurt though.

1 was a glider in a competition, it crashed because it couldn't find any termal rise.
The other one was a single engine 4 person plane, it crashed in the middle of a town, trying to use the wide road there as a landingstrip.
Its landing was quite succesfull, but the plane hadn't counted on parked cars and traffic on the road it seems. Noone got hurt in the car/plane collision though.

The danish crash happened around noon (local time).
The swedish happened 4 hours later, 2x4 people dead in both crashes...
"Motor failed" was the reason the swedish one crashed, but they dont know what caused the motorfailure. The swedish crashed in the forest just after take-off. Parashoot-people. Lost enginepower, crashed and caught fire. There are three survivors on this one, but they are in a serious condition (terrible, theyre burnt very bad and might not survive). For scandinavian readers:
Apparently the danish crash was a loop gone wrong. At least it appeared that way. Motor coughed and stopped...

Maybe this is why they crash?
Airlines struggle with high oil prices.
They simply run out of gas...

Were they both the same type of plane? if so, perhaps it is a design flaw?

The swedish was a Cessna 206
The danish just says "a plane from Copenhagen Air Taxi"...

Any electronic warefare ranges, ships etc? EM surges? Could have been an military experiment gone ary?

Well, it seems like the swedish crash still havent made it to the english speaking media...
Eyewitness says (Im translating) : "I could hear that something happened to the engine. Maybe an explosion, and then the real crash."
The plane crashed after take-off just after being refueled.
Theyre starting investigating the cause of crash today.

According to Swedish news, the engine of the cessna started failing right after take-off. The crash happened only a few minutes later.

When a one-engine plane crashes, usually it's caused by pilot-error; only in about 10-15 percent of the cases it's caused by technical failure, According to Chief Flight Safety Analyst at Luftfartsinspektionen, Hans Kjll.

According to the spokesman of the investigation-group, Gran Rosvall (not Roswell) :

(translated from Swedish)
"We still dont know the cause of crash"
"There was no black box in this plane"
"There are certain circumstances that astonishes the investigation-group"
"Conflicting eyewitness-reports"...
(some say the engine exploded, others say it didnt)
"The plane didnt fall straight down and crashed, it was flying close to a flat angle so there might have been other problems than just the engine."
Condition is still serious for 2 of the 3 survivors (50% and 30% burns)...

Could the fuel have been sabotaged?
Any other small planes crashed recently?
Is there something theyre not telling us?

Update on the danish crash.

It seems like the 3 passengers were having a sort of party.
I dont know the english word, but you know, when one of them is getting married the next day...
The "air taxi company" are even advertizing that passengers are allowed to use the "joystick" while flying...

Well, I guess you can figure the rest...
