On the 12th of October 2011, an Embraer 120ER Brasilia passenger plane operated by Nationale Régionale Transport sustained substantial damage in a runway excursion accident at Port-Gentil. There were 27 passengers and three crew members on board; four passengers suffered minor injuries.
This DC-3 is no stranger having previously been based at Dublin as EI-BDU of Clyden Airways and as G-AKNB with a variety of UK operators for many years before that. It was converted to BT-67 standard by Basler at Oshkosh and is in pristine condition. It stopped off for fuel while routing from the USA to Djibouti via Goose Bay, Keflavik, Dublin, Genoa & Cairo.
