We normally have the most amazing weather here with sunshine all year round. Now, with unusually cold and rainy weather hitting us hard (I’m told its a mid-latitude cyclone) two light aircraft went missing after an airshow in Tzaneen on Sunday afternoon.- about 100km’s from our farm. There were six people aboard each plane including two small children.
The planes are believed to have gone down in a remote and inaccessible area. Our weather is hampering search efforts. The airplanes are said to be sturdy and strong (Albatross) so it is hoped that they may have been able to make successful crash landings. My thoughts and prayers go out for those involved as well as their families who are awaiting news.
