The An-12 performed a charter flight from Kinshasa-N'Djili to Bunia. On board the aircraft were 6 crew members, 2 aircraft technicians and local citizens accompanying the cargo. The crew included an inspector and an instructor pilot.
At the moment of landing, a herd of animals unexpectedly entered the runway. In order to avoid a collision, the PIC added takeoff power but the instructor-pilot retarded the power levers and landed the plane almost in the middle of the runway. As a result of uncoordinated actions of the crew members, the plane rolled 400 m outside the runway, receiving significant damage. A fire erupted and the aircraft completely burned out. The aircraft crew and passengers were not injured.
