The F406 is a cessna unpressurized twin turbo-prop ... also called Caravan 1... just tap F406 into your google.... very sad event if the crew didn't make it out of there.. Fugro ops are generally considered to be very professional.

Sad News

Just got word that the two occupants on board suffered fatal injuries. It has it that one must have died on impact while the other passed as he was being rushed to hospital.
They were headed to western Uganda where oil exploration is in full swing. May their souls rest in peace.

from the news:
-----------------------------------
an airport employee, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to speak, said the South African pilot, Capt. Erard Peter, died instantly, while the technician from Botswana, Ms Selina Mareme, died almost immediately after being extracted from the wreckage.

"I think the plane could have crashed due to up-thrust, because the pilot took it up sharply like a military jet and then the engines suddenly failed, and we saw it coming down," said the source, who is fairly knowledgeable in aviation matters.
---------------------------------------------

Very sad news,

RIP

"""Does anyone know if any Canadians were involved?"""

So yes, there were 17 Canadians involved from what my deductive logic can establish.

Obituary for Fugro crew


I am a journalist from the Republic of Uganda where Fugro Airborne Surveys operates. Following the plane crash on wednesday in which the dead were identified as Capt. Erad Keyter, a South African national and Celina Mareme, a Botswana national, I am writing an obituary to feature in a Ugandan daily.

In this, I will include memories shared with friends, family and colleagues. I will be grateful for any contact and information volunteered.

I vaguely know about the aviation industry ethic, spelling it improper to give any comment without the permission from the deceased's next of kin. But the identities are already in the public domain and I ask you to think of it as another way to say adieu to the fallen souls who made an impact in the lives of those they met and interacted with. I will be grateful and look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible.
