Two pilots, 33-year-old Oyit Ajack and 25-year-old Bhadresh Kadiwar have died after an air crash on a farm near Gqeberha on 25 June.

The NSRI EOC (Emergency Operations Centre) was alerted by the Aeronautical Rescue Coordination Centre (ARCC) of a light aircraft overdue at a Gqeberha airfield during a flight from Kenton-On-Sea.

Police K9 Search and Rescue, Police divers, NSRI Gqeberha, Eastern Cape EMS, volunteer medics from Port Alfred, SA National Parks rangers, and The Mountain Club of South Africa were all involved in the search operation that went on through the night.

The plane was later found on a farm in the Kinkelbos area. Police have opened an inquest docket and the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) has launched an investigation.

A memorial service will be held for Ajack and Kadiwar at the Algeo Flying Club on 29 June.
