A Boeing 737-2K9 passenger plane, operated by Cameroon Airlines, was destroyed in an accident at Douala, Cameroon. Five of the 76 occupants survived the accident.
The Boeing 737, named "Nyong", operated on a passenger flight from Cotonou, Benin to Douala, Cameroon. The flight crew reported landing gear problems and elected to abort the approach. On its second approach, the airplane entered a steep dive and crashed about 6 km short of the runway in a mangrove swamp. It appeared that the aircraft was carrying out a go-around and that the no. 2 engine was operating at high power while the no. 1 engine was not developing power.
