Another namibian accident ?

Rumour has it that a welknow operator at Eros had an accident involving a C-310. No injuries.

Seems that there are still a few aircraft left in Namibia. At this rate for how much longer seems to be the question

V5-LWH, actually was a nice C310R with good equipment. Dont have details just heard that it struck trees on T/O on some farm, plane is apparently wrecked but no deaths. Inexperience might play a role here. Just glad nobody died. The last 24 months has been devastating for Namibian aviation and the ATC sector.

anthill? I sometimes wonder where people get their info from. Anyway! The pilot has 90 hrs on type and a lot of bush flying experience!

As far as I remember V5-JIH a C402B also struck an anthill on landing and made the gear collapse.

Where did it happen this time ?
