Ironically at the same time as the Safety First presentation.


RIP AVIATOR.
I wondered why Santjie left the Webinar after her presentation... obviously had to attend to the crash alert.

Very sad to hear of the loss of life. Condolences.
All systems are go!

One person was killed, and another left critically injured this evening following a light aircraft crash at a field in Springs.

ER24 paramedics, along with the Provincial Services, arrived on scene to find the wreckage on the side of the field. Two people were found lying inside the light aircraft.

Medics assessed the patients and found that a woman had sustained numerous fatal injuries. Nothing could be done for her, and she was declared dead by another service.

The second patient, a man, was assessed and found to be in a critical condition. The man was extricated, treated and provided with several advanced life support interventions before being transported to a nearby hospital. The details surrounding this incident are not yet known, but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations

Wow, how sad! This was the winning aircraft in the Speed Rally at Springs in 2019...

If the accident happened on the airfield premises , was this a post take off , or landing accident. I am assuming this was a training flight. In the event of an emergency the instructor takes control immediately. There appears to have been no fire. How much fuel was in the wings. Were flaps extended.

Hi Jim

Yes, AC lying to the left of runway approx abeam the numbers of 03 on the grass.
Looking for AC.

If you push the stick forward, the houses get bigger. If you pull the stick back, they get smaller. That is, unless you keep pulling the stick all the way back, then they get bigger again
