Mark Sampson

for anyone who knows Mark this was on FB this afternoon , I believe he was a Capt at Cathay

A South African aviator was killed when his aerobatic aircraft crashed during an air show display at Charles Prince Airport in Zimbabwe.

The incident happened on Tuesday night.

The pilot has been identified as 54-year-old Mark “Sammy” Sampson from Marksmen Aviation Team.

In a statement, Marksmen Aviation Team described Sampson as an “outstanding aviator, honoured team member, trusted number-4 and loyal friend”.

This is very sad to hear. Flew with him many times on the 747. Great guy to fly with. He will be missed.

There is discussion and video on Some analysis of the movement of the aircraft by other top aero pilots who know the Sbach, but nothing definitive.

Look for the "accident Harare"

Doing what he loved.
