|Plane Crashes in Congo
30.01.2012/ 06:45 GMT
DR Congo/ Maniema/ Namoya
An Tracep Antonov 28 airplane was destroyed in an accident near Namoya, D.R. Congo. The captain (the Russian - Vladimir Kurbatov), the co-pilot (an Indian) and a passenger died. Two occupants survived: a 66-year-old woman - uninjured and a crew -member - injured.
The airplane departed Bukavu (BKY) at 07:45 on a domestic flight to Namoya. The plane failed to arrive and a search was initiated. The crew of another aircraft found what looked like the debris of the Antonov in a forest. A government spokesman could not confirm whether any had survived. He believed that the accident was due to bad weather. Tracep Congo Aviation is known to operate at least one An-28, 9Q-CAX but it has not been confirmed if this was the plane involved in the accident. The aircompany is blacklisted in the EU.
