Narrative:
The aircraft departed Ol Jogi Airstrip at about 1335 hours for a local flight around the area. On board were the pilot and one passenger, both foreign nationals. The next time it was seen was between 1400 and 1430 hours by the owner of Chololo Farm. It flew overhead for a while then disappeared behind the hill. The following morning a search was mounted using a helicopter and the wreckage was found about 11 kilometers from the Airstrip.
The probable cause of this accident was loss of engine power during flight maneuvering, leading the aircraft to dive and impact the ground.
