A light plane crashed in western Tanzania yesterday, killing two South Africans, the officials said.
The plane with registration ZU-TAF-19 is a four-seater Sling plane from South Africa, according to Tanzanian officials.
“The plane, which was owned by a South African organisation known as U-Dream Global, was destroyed by fire after the crash. Only the engine and some parts of the plane were recovered.”
The plane, which entered Tanzania’s airspace from Uganda en route to Malawi, made a distress signal about engine failure before disappearing from radar, according to the Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority (TCAA).
