Johannesburg - The two people who died in a light aircraft crash near Lanseria International Airport outside Johannesburg were identified, Beeld reported on Saturday.

The newspaper named them as Odette Prinsloo, aged 24, a flight instructor from Lanseria and Jaun Claasen, aged 19, a trainee.

The two were reportedly on a training flight when the plane crashed on Thursday.

According to Beeld, Claasen from Hartbeespoort was passionate about flying and worked part-time at a gym to finance his flight training.

Airport spokesperson Claudette Vianello said eyewitnesses stated the plane left the airport and appeared to be trying to return when it crashed on open land outside the airport.

Officials were trying to determine the cause of the crash.
