Narrative:
The aircraft departed Nairobi-Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO/HKNA) at 04:53 hours with an ETA at Siana Springs, Maasai Mara of 05:53 hours. On board were the pilot and two passengers. The plane did not arrive at Siana Springs. Several hours later the wreckage was found on the nearby Loita Hills at an altitude of approximately 7600 feet. All on board had perished. The probable cause of this accident was controlled flight into terrain (CFIT) due to the pilot's lack of vertical situational awareness. A major contributing factor was the poor visibility that prevailed in the Loita Hills area at the time of the accident.
