This was the personal plane of Mozambican president Samora Machel. On a flight from Mbala in Zambia to Mozambique's capital, Maputo, on 19 October 1986 the aircraft crashed at Mbuzini, in the (then) Transvaal on the border between South Africa and Mozambique. There is a certain level of controversy connected with this event, ranging from pilot error to false VOR signals. The official report concluded that it was a controlled flight into terrain.

Mozambique's presidential aircraft was not a common sight in Europe, so its visit to Rotterdam Airport was very welcome. This aircraft crashed near Nelspruit, South Africa three years later, on 19 October 1986. The aircraft broke up and caught fire, killing 26 of the 36 passengers, including President Machel.
