The CS208 plane, registration number 5Y-CAC, was flying from a Kitale airstrip in Trans-Nzoia County to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport when it lost contact with control tower at 5pm.

The plane belongs to Kenyan safari airline Flysax, a subsidiary of Kenyan budget airline Fly 540, and went missing about 60 kilometres north of Nairobi over the Aberdare mountains on Tuesday.

"Unfortunately, from the reports we are getting there are no survivors".

Search teams were dispatched to the site.

Ovechkin has been setting the tone for the Capitals since their first-round comeback victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets. He slipped the shot past Fleury to seal the game 3-1. "It was a bit of the same story with Tuch after the second match".

Affected families were asked to go to the Lee Funeral Home in Nairobi Friday morning to view the bodies which were transported from the terrains of Njambini region South West of Aberdares Thursday night.

Authorities said the Cessna Caravan plane which departed at 4:05 p.m. Tuesday from Kitale, was headed to the capital city of Nairobi. "They can be sure that there will be a full review of our procedures, so that we can all understand how this tragedy happened".

In October 2017 five passengers were killed when a helicopter crashed into Lake Nakuru, while in 2012 a helicopter carring internal security minister George Saitot crashed, killing all six passengers on board.

Details are emerging that the two pilots who perished alongside eight passengers in the ill-fated FlySAX light aircraft complained that they didn't understand that route they were diverted to, leading to the crush.
