DUBAI: Four people, including three Britons, were killed when a small plane crashed near Dubai International Airport on Wednesday.

 The crash, which temporarily halted some flights in and out of the busy regional hub, killed three Britons and a South African on board the four-seater Diamond DA62, said the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority.

The UK registered plane was reportedly on a mission to calibrate terrestrial navigation systems at the airport when it crashed about 5 kilometers south of the airport due to a mechanical fault.

“All operations at the Dubai airport are running smoothly after a slight delay and diversion of some flights as a precautionary measure to ensure security following a minor incident involving a small plane,” the media office said.
