Search for missing planes resumes
Johannesburg - The search for two light aircraft that went missing in George's Valley in Limpopo will continue on Monday, Search and Rescue SA said.
"We are now briefing pilots as to the search pattern and they will begin searching as soon as possible," said spokesperson Johnny Smit.
He said overnight foot patrols had searched for the two planes which went missing while flying to Gauteng after an airshow in Tzaneen.
The planes took off from a landing strip in Tarentaal, a small farming community in Tzaneen, on Sunday, and were headed to Rand Airport in Germiston.
The Albatross planes, carrying six people each, were presumed to be in the George's Valley area, between Polokwane and Tzaneen, Mopani District Municipality spokesperson Mashadi Mathosa said on Sunday.
"There is a joint search operation to find the planes... George's Valley is a mountainous area so we are concerned."
