The government of Germany has notified the NTSB of an accident involving an amateur-built EPIG 1000LT airplane that occurred on March 31, 2019. The NTSB has appointed a U.S. Accredited Representative to assist the government of Germany's investigation under the provisions of ICAO Annex 13.

All investigative information will be released by the government of Germany.

A pilot and two passengers believed to be Russian nationals have been killed in a small plane crash in western Germany.

Russia's S7 Airlines identified one of the victims as its co-owner, Natalia Fileva.

"The cause of the tragedy is not yet known," the company said in a statement.

The 55-year-old was listed in 2018 by Forbes magazine as the fourth richest women in Russia with an estimated fortune of $660 million (€534 million).

The small six-seater Epic-LT plane crashed into an asparagus field south of the German city of Frankfurt around 3:30 p.m. local time (1330 UTC). The plane had been making its descent to Frankfurt Airport.

A police spokesman in the central German state of Hesse said the plane came down near Egelsbach, 22 kilometers (13 miles) south of Frankfurt, and then caught fire.
