Planes' wreckage: No word on survivors
Johannesburg - The wreckage of the two aircraft that went missing in George's Valley near Tzaneen has been found, Search and Rescue SA spokesperson Johnny Smit said on Tuesday.
Smit said it was not yet established if any of the people on board survived the crash.
Rescue personnel were being hoisted down into the area to look for survivors, he said.
When News24 last spoke to Smit he said there was no word yet from rescuers on whether or not they had found survivors or bodies.
He said, however, that communication with the rescue team was tricky given that they were in a mountainous region.
Both planes were discovered by a police helicopter, after weather allowed for search and rescue efforts to continue on Tuesday.
Bad weather, and low cloud conditions had hampered operations on Monday, Smit said.
He added that rescue efforts would be a "straight forward operation".
Most of the family of those on board had also gathered in Tzaneen. Family and media in the area were being briefed by rescue personnel.
The planes disappeared on the way to Germiston after an air show on Sunday.
