A South African Air Force (SAAF) CASA C212 Aviocar crashed yesterday afternoon whilst supporting Exercise VUKUHLOME 2023 at the SA Army Combat Training Centre (Lohatlha).

The aircraft apparently overran the dirt runway, bit fortunately resulted in no serious injuries.

On 12 May this year, C212 8010 was landing at AFB Waterkloof when the brakes locked and the aircraft ran off the side of the runway. Damage was caused to the right wingtip, but the aircraft was subsequently repaired.

There are still another two C-212s: 8010 and 8020 (both airworthy).

Another view :(
