In Kenya, five people, including three Americans, were killed on Wednesday (Feb 13) when a small plane on its way from tourist spot of Maasai Mara to another tourist spot at Lodwar, crashed during emergency landing in western part of the country.
According to witnesses plane was making odd sounds as it approached the field. The pilot gestured at farm workers on the ground below to move away before the rear hit a tree, they said.
“The plane clipped the tree and the rear wheels came off,” said farm worker Joseph Ng’ethe. “It then careened and crashed into another tree in front and into the ground.” “This prompted our Search and Rescue team to initiate an emergency mission,” the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) said adding that it had started investigations.
