Narrative:
The An-12 departed Lobito, Angola on a flight to Luena (LUO) and Cazombo (CAV).
The unpaved runway at Cazombo turned out to be too short and too narrow and the wings hit some bushes upon landing. When the crew learned that the airfield was mined they wanted to take-off again immediately, but while turning for the take-off run the right main gear got stuck in a pot-hole and broke, causing the propellers to touch the ground.
The aircraft was to be repaired after some time (CCCP-11130 brought new engines, propellers and technicians) but it appeared that the fuselage had suffered from severe corrosion in the meantime.
