Seen during its landing at Goma International Airport in eastern Democratic Republic Congo, this L410 with registration CAZ of a company named CAS. This Turbolet sustained substantial damage in a runway excursion accident at Butembo Airport (DRC) when operating out of Goma. Fifteen passengers and three crew members survived the accident. The L410 was substantially damaged, and was not seen flying after 30 October 2012 when the incident happened.
This 1966 An-12B flew with many different companies, but it started its career with the Soviet Air Force. It was commercially sold to AFL/Privolzhsk in the late 1990s, and then companies as Aeroflot, Avial, Southern AirGroupe, Eurasia Airlines, Pochta Rossii and Aeriantur-M (as shown on this picture) followed. In October 2007, the An-12 suffered a ground incident at Kisangani (DRC) damaging an engine and the starboard main undercarriage. The owners rebuilt the aircraft but it unfortunately crashed with Aerolift as S9-SVN at Luxer (Egypt) on 20 February 2009. Thanks Soviet Transports database!
An exclusive picture of a Mi-35 Hind of the Force Aérienne Congolaise at Goma International Airport. The attack helicopters of the FAC are rarely seen and it is believed that a dozen or so were delivered, Mi-24s, Mi-24Vs and this sole Mi-35.
