Written off (damaged beyond repair) February 14, 2001 when the aircraft undershot the runway at approach to N'Djamena International Airport, N'Djamena, Chad, and hit a tree 3 km short of the landing surface. The aircraft came down at KoussÚri, Far North Province, Logone-et-Chari department, in Cameroon, just over the Cameroon/Chad border.**

There was poor weather and reduced visibility due to a sand haze. Of the four persons on board - pilot and three passengers - the pilot and two passengers were killed. Only one passenger survived, albeit injured.

**The aircraft was listed as a "Piper Cheyenne III" in the Flight International report, which also lists the crash location as being in Chad, not Cameroon.
