A wreckage believed to be of a helicopter that went missing seven years ago was found in a forest near Knysna in the Southern Cape, the South African Civil Aviation Authority said on Saturday.

Spokesperson Phindiwe Gwebu said the wreckage was found with two human remains still strapped into the seats. Another body was found outside the helicopter.

"When we looked at our records we found that it might have been a helicopter that went missing in March 1999 with three people, including the pilot."

She said, according to their records, the occupants were on a leisure trip to Knysna from Port Elizabeth.

The search team at the time had believed that the helicopter crashed into the sea.


After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...
