Détails:
A Beechcraft B200 Super King Air, A2-MBM, impacted the ATC tower and club house at the Matsieng Aerodrome, Botswana. The pilot and sole occupant of the aircraft was killed.
Earlier in the afternoon the pilot was an uninvited guest at a private function that was held at the Matsieng Flying Club facility at Matsieng Aerodrome. In a statement, the Matsieng Flying Club reported that it was rumoured that the pilot was involved in a domestic dispute earlier in the afternoon.
At approximately 18:15 hours the aircraft approached Matsieng Aerodrome from the direction of Sir Seretse Khama Airport and made a number of low level fly pasts from different directions past the Club facilities next to the Air Traffic Control tower. An immediate evacuation of the club premises was ordered.
The final extreme low level run by the aircraft along runway 36 resulted in an impact with the Matsieng Flying Club facility at ground level. The Club facility and Matsieng ATC tower was destroyed on impact. The post impact fire destroyed 13 parked vehicles.
