Circumstances:
Shortly after takeoff from Lanseria bound for Bazaruto Island, Mozambique, the pilot informed ground that the engine failed and elected to return for an immediate landing. On final, the aircraft hit a perimeter fence and crashed in flames near the runway threshold. All three occupants were injured and the aircraft was destroyed by a post crash fire. Built in 1975, this Cessna 402B was equipped with a new turbo engine and redesigned as a single engine Cessna (DMI) Falcon 402 (the C402 is usually a twin engine aircraft).
