Narrative:
The plane belonged to a Windhoek-based air charter company Westair Wings Charters and was being used to perform an aerial geological survey for the Namibian Ministry of Mines and Energy. Weather conditions were ideal at the time of the crash, the aircraft was flying away from the sun and the wheels were retracted, so the circumstances of the crash are somewhat mysterious. The aircraft was completely destroyed on impact.
