A pilot deliberately smashed a stolen plane into a club hosting a baby shower in a bid to kill his wife following an intense argument they had earlier.
The pilot whose name is Charl Viljoen allegedly hit his wife Natasha hours before ploughing a plane into a clubhouse where she had been attending a baby shower.
Charl Viljoen was filmed flying the aircraft dangerously low as he menaced guests at the party in Botswana, according to witnesses.

He then ploughed the plane directly into the building, killing himself in a huge fireball and destroying the clubhouse.
No one else is believed to have been hurt as panicked party-goers managed to evacuate just moments earlier.
Witnesses had noticed the plane circling perilously close to the building at Matsieng aerodrome near Gaborone, the capital of Botswana, just after sunset and rushed to get out.
It’s believed that hours before the crash, Mr Viljoen, 38, had arrived uninvited to the party.
The South African was said to have hit his wife Natasha during an argument, witnesses told local media.
A party-goer told The Citizen: “He had a fight with his wife there and he actually hit his wife, and everybody told him to f*** off because you don’t treat a woman like that.”
Viljoen is thought to have travelled 30 miles south to Sir Seretse Khama airport where he stole a twin-engined Beechcraft Super King Air B200 plane.
The dad-of-one then smashed the eight-seater aircraft into the clubhouse, which erupted in flames and destroyed 13 cars and an air traffic control tower.
The building at Matsieng aerodrome was destroyed when the plane ploughed directly into it on Saturday evening
