The aircraft was doing the "bank run" where cheques were collected along a route and returned to the base at Lanseria. A young commercial pilot building hours by doing these charters was returning from Durban in really bad weather and became disorientated around Heidelberg, Gauteng. The aircraft flew straight into the ground killing the pilot and his assistant.
