"Medics from ER24 and other services are at the scene of a plane crash at Wonderboom in Pretoria", said a spokesman for ER24.

"Initial reports show that approximately 20 people had sustained injuries ranging from minor to critical", ER24 said in an emailed statement.

The Convair plane - built in 1954 - was due to soon be flown to the Aviodrome air museum, near the central Dutch city of Lelystad, after reportedly being renovated at the small Wonderboom airport in Pretoria.

"There is smoke all over and paramedics are on the scene".

Local emergency services posted a picture on Twitter showing passengers being helped from the burning wreckage of a plane in a grassy field.

Aviodrome wrote on Facebook that it was "hugely shocked", by the crash.

It was unclear how many people were on board the plane when it went down.

"We are unsure as yet of how the incident occurred".

"All we know is shortly after take-off the plane experienced trouble and crashed". It had just been refurbished for 350,000 euros ($410,000) at Wonderboom.

A spokesman for Martin Air said it had no information about the plane or the crash.

At the same time, the Civil Aviation Authority says its officials will continue their investigation on Wednesday morning.
