The plane carrying soccer player Emiliano Sala probably broke up in mid-air before crashing into the sea off the Channel Islands, a former accident investigator said on Monday. Britain's Air Accident Investigations Branch (AAIB) has issued an interim report on the crash, which killed Sala and pilot David Ibbotson in January. Sala's body was recovered from the plane's wreckage on the sea bed while Ibbotson's body has not been found.
