DUBAI (Reuters) - A small plane crashed south of Dubai airport killing three Britons and one South African, the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority said in a statement on Thursday.

The four-seat plane, a DA42 registered in the United Kingdom, was on a mission to calibrate terrestrial navigation systems at the airport, the statement said.

An investigation is underway. Air traffic at the airport has returned to normal, it said.

Police believe the Cessna 210, which is registered to a NSW company, crashed about 26 kilometres north-east of Mount Isa Airport on Sunday afternoon. About 4.30pm, a rescue helicopter crew told police the plane's wreckage had been found after a distress beacon was activated. "It is believed two men were on-board at the time of the incident and pronounced deceased at the scene," police said. The forensic crash unit is helping the Australian Transport Safety Bureau with its investigation. In a statement on Sunday night, the ATSB said the light plane had been conducting a survey flight when it had an accident.
