Frighter Crashes in Congo


An Antonov AN-12 freighter plane belonging to the Congo-based cargo company Galaxy Inc crashed on Friday during landing at Goma Airport in Congo. The plane was about to land for a planned stop over, when it slid into a petrified lava flow and caught fire.

All 8 aboard were reported dead. The crew reportedly consisted of two persons from Georgia, two from the Ukraine and one from Congo. The plane was owned by Georgian carrier Transaviaservice. The An-12’s Certificate of Airworthiness had expired in March and had not been renewed.

This type of plane is blacklisted by the EU.
