Pilot on Emiliano Sala flight was ‘colour-blind and not allowed to fly at night’

Pilot on Emiliano Sala flight was ‘colour-blind and not allowed to fly at night’ The pilot of the downed plane that was carrying footballer Emiliano Sala was not qualified to fly at night, it has been reported. The plane crashed into the English Channel in January and Sala’s body was found the following month.

Pilot John Gregory was not hurt in the Monday night crash, which happened when his single-engine Piper Cub PA-18 lost power and a wing strut became entangled in the tree, according to the fire department in the resort town of McCall.

Gregory was rescued from his perch atop the giant white fir by volunteer firefighter Randy Acker, who owns a tree removal company.

"My thought was, 'I need to get up there and see what's going on,'" Acker said.

Acker had Gregory stand up in the plane so he could cut the pilot's harness and clip him to a safety line for the descent. Gregory was brought down safely with the plane still lodged in the branches.

Most of the weight of the plane was borne by one tree, but it also was touching a nearby tree.

"Those wings were perfectly centered over the top of the tree," said McCall Fire Capt. Brandon Swain.
