25 April 2002: The last remaining airworthy Spitfire (Mk IXe /TE566) in South Africa crashed and was destroyed, killing owner/pilot Michael Snoyman. He was reportedly flying the aircraft home to its base at Wonderboom Airport near Pretoria, when the engine lost power in the traffic pattern. (warbirdregistry.org)
