On October 27, 1962, Enrico Mattei, on a flight from Catania, Sicily to Milan's Linate Airport, died when his jet airplane, a Morane-Saulnier MS.760 Paris, crashed in the countryside near Bascapè. Pilot Irnerio Bertuzzi and the American journalist William McHale were also killed with Mattei. Subsequent inquiries officially declared that it was an accident; it is widely believed, however, that Mattei was murdered by sabotage of the airplane.
