Cape Town - The plane that crashed in Wonderboom on Tuesday is not operated nor owned by Martinair or Air France.

This is according to AirFrance-KLM, who added that the aircraft was painted in Martin’s Air Charter retro livery but is in fact a Convair aircraft.

"The Convair aircraft was destined for the Dutch aircraft museum Aviodrome at Lelystad Airport in The Netherlands. Martinair and Air France - KLM wishes to send its sympathy to the passengers and crew and all others involved in this accident," AirFrance-KLM said in a statement.

One person was killed and about 20 people injured after the plane crashed at the Wonderboom airport, paramedics confirmed on Tuesday.

The Convair plane - built in 1954 - was due to soon be flown to the museum after reportedly being renovated at the small airport.

Images from the site showed the plane broken into several pieces as paramedics helped survivors out of the aircraft and treated patients at the scene as firefighters tackled the smoking wreckage.
