Two South African pilots die in DRC air tragedy

Two South African pilots were killed when their plane crashed while approaching the town of Lubutu in the northern regions of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Captains André Nel and Charles Greyvenstein died on Thursday when the South African-registered Convair 580 aircraft they were piloting fell from the sky. The pilots were flying cargo under contract for a Congolese airline from Goma to Lubutu. Two Congolese crewmembers also died in the crash. Phindiwe Gwebu of the Civil Aviation Authority said that two South African investigators are waiting for permission from the DRC to begin their investigation at the site.
