He said the pilot was in a critical condition following the crash.

The plane had been due to fly later this week to Aviodrome via east Africa, through Egypt, Croatia, Austria to the Netherlands. Martin's Air Charter is an affiliate of Air France-KLM. It had just been refurbished for 350,000 euros ($410,000) at Wonderboom.

Pieterse says Civil Aviation Authority will be investigating the crash.
