Petrescu headed a major construction company and was the owner of a string of malls and markets.
The single-engine aircraft had departed from Linate airport in Milan and was headed for Olbia. The footage shows the plane diving towards the ground in a vertical position near buildings located on the side of a road in Milan.
The report mentioned that a fireball erupted and a thick cloud of smoke then filled the air.
The destroyed aircraft’s black box was recovered and an investigation has been launched. Firefighters stated that no one else but those on board the aircraft were killed.
The building was being renovated but there were no workers on the site as it was Sunday.
