An Aero Fret Business Antonov 12 cargo plane was destroyed when it crashed at Nganga Lingolo, Congo, killing all six on board. The cargo flight departed Pointe Noire Airport (PNR) about 04:00 local time, bound for Brazzaville-Maya Maya Airport (BZV). On board were five Ukrainian crew members and one Congolese passengers. The cargo consisted of food, a minibus and three cars.
The airplane was approaching Brazzaville runway 05 when it crashed in a cemetery, some 11 km (6 nm) short of the runway threshold. The airplane came down near the Final Approach Point (FAP) for a VOR-DME/ILS runway 05 instrument approach. The airplane should have started its final approach at that point, from an altitude of 1970 feet above ground level.
