A CASA C-212-CB Aviocar skydiving plane sustained damage in a wire strike accident at Saint-Jean-de-Thurac, France.
The airplane had been ferried to Agen on November 15, 2009 because of maintenance work to be performed on the plane the next day. The captain and co-pilot decided to make a pleasure flight near Agen. The C-212 departed at 16:40 and flew over the Garonne River towards the east. While over the river at low altitude, the flight collided with a medium tension power line across the river at a height of 15 m. After landing the airplane showed many signs of shock and friction by the cable on the airframe, wings and engines.

The airplane, F-GOGN, was used in the James Bond movie "The World is not Enough".

- Improvisation on a flight below the minimum heights;
- Non-detection of the obstacle.
