Pilot is found dead in airport car-park

A RYANAIR pilot, aged 45, was found dead last Friday in an airport car-park at Malaga, on Spain’s Costa del Sol.

Colleagues of Captain Jouke Schrale were said to be “in shock” over the tragedy after the pilot was believed to have killed himself, hours before a scheduled short-haul flight.

Dutchman Captain Schrale, known to his friends as Jake, was found dead in his vehicle in a staff car-park.

Friday’s 8.30am flight from Malaga to Brussels was delayed for several hours while a replacement pilot was found.

Ryanair said: “His colleagues are in deep shock. We offer our deepest sympathy.”

The Sun newspaper reported that the Dutchman lived with his Belgian partner, Jessica, in nearby Mijas.

A Facebook message said: “Rest in peace Captain Jouke Schrale. In this moment of sorrow, we express our most sincere condolences to the family, and we embrace each other in a fraternal embrace. High skies for you Captain!”

A Ryanair spokesperson said: “His colleagues are in deep shock. We offer our deepest sympathy.”
