Wounded In South Africa Plane Crash

About 20 people were injured in a plane crash near Wonderboom Airport in the South African Capital Pretoria on Tuesday, an Emergency Services Group said in a statement.

Three Dutch people remain in hospital after a vintage plane crashed during a test flight in South Africa.

Images from the scene of the incident showed the aircraft broken into multiple pieces as rescue workers helped passengers and crew out of the smoking wreckage.

Local emergency services said on Twitter that one person was critically injured.

"There was one fatality in the cockpit, we are not sure if it's the pilot or the engineer". Reports say that there have been no deaths but there are 20 people injured.

"Our medical services are now on the scene".

The plane went down on Tuesday 10 July 2018, crashing into a small factory.

"We are not sure what happened at this stage", Rosella Passier, the Aviodrome's marketing manager, told AFP in The Hague.

A video has emerged that captures the final moments before the plane crashed.

Designed for medium distances, the Convair's route included stops in Zambia, Uganda, Sudan, Egypt, Croatia, Austria and then Lelystad.

"The aircraft was painted in Martin's Air Charter (retro) livery, but is not operated nor owned by Martinair or Air France - KLM", the airline said in a statement.
