Windhoek - A Mozambique Airlines plane en route to Angola crashed in a game park in northeast Namibia killing all 34 people on board, a Namibian police official said on Saturday.

Namibian Police Force deputy commissioner Willy Bampton told Reuters the burned out wreckage of the aircraft, which went missing on Friday, was found in the Bwabwata National Park, near the borders with Angola and Botswana.

"The plane has been completely burnt to ashes and there are no survivors," Bampton said.

    I don't understand how can a plane get lost,because there is a campus that a pilot is used to drive so how can it get lost?anyway thanks but i don't understand.

      Hey Dr DanzelMoron,the planes navigation system(your stupid campus) can mulfunction on adverse weather condition. Any more very stupid questions Danzel?

      Lets be honest, Denzel is not the sharpest tool in the shed.

    Tragic and scary way to go. It's a beautiful place to crash though. That's where I'd like my ashes scattered one day.

  • Toby Clive Goss - 2013-11-30 14:45

    Katima Mulilo or closer to Fort doppies? That part of the world is bundu. Wonder why it stopped flying.

  • Petros Zwane - 2013-11-30 17:07

    shocking and sad news indeed...may their soul rest in peace.

  • Jo Davies - 2013-11-30 17:43

    Denzel, the computer the pilots use to fly is at the mercy of weather conditions and malfunction risks. The sky is a big place when this happens

  • Mirnix Dirnix - 2013-11-30 20:47

    I would say, how about waiting for the results of the "Black Box" and cockpit voice recorder!!!Hope it will be found in tact. There are zillions of reasons for a plane to go down.Condolences to all relatives involved an the victims RIP.hope it went fast.

  • Esther Jacobsz Coetzee - 2013-12-01 08:39

    Perhaps the ghosts of the Apartheid army has something to do with this.....(like the ANC believes about the Samora Machel crash)

  • Adair Victoria Cross - 2013-12-01 12:51

    Bad.Sympathy to all the families
