NO LANDING STRIP ANYMORE!!!

Since the start of the Skorpion Zinc Mine (since 2002) 25km North West of Rosh Pinah, the landing strip in / close to town has become a normal street with speed bumps in town. No aircraft can do a safy landing there between the houses at all.

More details

Once can also land in the nearby salt pan (all fences have been removed from within the salt pan).

Most bushes have been cleared along the main road cutting through the farm yielding many possible emergency landing opportunities.

The cross runway cannot be seen on the map above.

Great place to land in the Kalahari, accomodation is available, so is transport to Windhoek and the International Airport.

This place is also a great guest farm in Namibia, (Gaestefarm).

re: Cessna 210 crashes after takeoff

Hi,

In defense of Eros Airport as such, the Pilot was NOT familiar with the Airport and took the shorter run-way with an overloaded Plane. Having 5 Passengers in a 210 on a very hot day at 5600ft ASL is looking for problems.

It is sad that Namibia gets such negative publicity, due to one Airline not putting Safety First. :(

Cessna 210 crashes after takeoff

An Atlantic Aviation Cessna 210 lost power and went down in a residential neighbourhood right after takeoff from Eros Airport on 11 January 2008, killing all six people on board:
