Détails:
A Convair 340, registation ZS-BRV, crashed and broke up during a test flight out of Wonderboom Airport, reportedly carrying about 20 occupants.
During takeoff from Wonderboom Airport, the aircraft was seen trailing smoke from the no.1 engine. Eyewitnesses also reported observing flames. The pilot flew a right hand circuit at low altitude for an emergency landing back on runway 29. Having turned to base leg the aircraft went down about 6 km to the east of the airport. It impacted a shed and broke up. The flight engineer sustained fatal injuries.
The aircraft had been donated by the owner, Rovos Air, to the Dutch aviation theme park Aviodrome. It carried the colour scheme of the former Dutch airline Martin's Air Charter (later renamed Martinair) and was to be ferried to the Netherlands with an expected arrival at Lelystad Airport on July 23, 2018. The accident flight was the final test flight before the planned start of the ferry flight on July 12.
