Air Serv International (note small titles on rear fuselage) is a nonprofit humanitarian organization flying relief workers and supplies in remote areas in the world. This 1978 Twin Otter served the United Nations in the Democratic Republic Congo (DRC) during 2007. Two years earlier, it was damaged during a bad landing at Akon, Sudan on 14 November 2005. Luckily, the robust aircraft was repaired and it continued its service over the African continent. Unfortunately, it did not survived a second crash, this time on 31 August 2007 when it fataly crashed near Punia (DRC).

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!
