The Swiss-manufactured aircraft took off from Queenstown (South Africa) carrying seven passengers and two crew members and had attempted to land at Plettenberg Bay where it was due to pick up another passenger.  The pilot aborted an attempt to land in heavy fog and was in the process of doing a go-around to re-attempt landing when it crashed into the sea.
