Impala Jet Crash

An Impala fighter jet crashed next to a highway in Mpumalanga province, killing both pilots, and injuring a passenger in a truck which one of the pilots hit after ejecting from the plane. It was the second fatal Impala crash in 18 months.

The aging Impalas are due to be replaced by British Aerospace Hawk fighters as part of the controversial arms deal.
