On the way from Kitale to Jomo Kenyatta Airport in Nairobi, the crew encountered poor weather conditions with limited visibility. While cruising at an altitude of 11,000 feet, the single engine airplane struck the slope of a mountain located in the Aberdare Mountain Range, about 75 km north of Nairobi. The wreckage was found in the morning of June 7. The airplane disintegrated on impact and all 10 occupants have been killed.
