During the flight from Skukuza to Pilanesberg the HS-738 developed a hydraulic problem, resulting in a complete hydraulic failure. The flight continued to Pilanesberg were a safe landing was carried out on runway 23. Shortly after the landing the pilot shut down both engines, but maintained the runway heading for approximately 2000 m, until the aircraft veered off to the left of the runway where it entered a ditch, 75 m from the runway edge, where it finally stopped.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The accident resulted from a complete hydraulic failure, probably as a result of a leak on the L/H engine pump, which was not dealt with properly. Contributing to this was an incomplete emergency checklist."
