Since October 2004, Trans Air Congo was operator of this unmarked L-410UVP. The Turbolet was written of on 17 May 2007 on a flight from Walikale (North Kivu province) to Goma. The aircraft was loaded with cassiterite when it crashed into a forest almost directly after take-off from the road airstrip at Kilambo. It is reported that it encountered problems with the left engine, subsequently it caught fire and burnt out, both pilots and the sole passenger were unfortunately killed.
