Shocking footage has emerged of the devastating plane crash at Malta airport yesterday.

The dash cam footage, published on Laurent Azzopardi’s Facebook page yesterday, shows the final moments before the small aircraft exploded into a fireball.

Azzopardi wrote, “On my way to the work this morning – a very shocking experience, a plane crash.”

The twin-prop fell from the sky shortly after taking off at 7.20am local time (6.20am BST) on Monday morning.

Three French Defence Ministry officials and two private contractors were killed in the crash. The French Defence Ministry said that the victims had been conducting a surveillance operation tracing trafficking routes from Libya.
