Double plane crash leaves 13 dead in South Africa
All 13 people on board two crashed South African planes were declared dead on Tuesday, after a two-day hunt for the wreckage, dpa reported.
The two Albatros planes were found in the early morning hours near the mountainous George's Valley area.
They had taken off after an airshow on Sunday from a landing strip in Tzaneen, near Kruger National Park, and were heading south. The flights were expected in the Johannesburg vicinity in the early afternoon, but never turned up, sparking a massive search operation.
The Civil Aviation Authority said an investigation was opened into the crashes, in which two children were among the dead. The government sent its condolences to the families of the deceased.
