The IL-76M transport plane was involved in the evacuation of the Aouzou Strip on the Chad/Libyan border during the 1987 Chadian-Libyan conflict. Chadian forces were recapturing the Aouzou Strip and the aircraft took off under shelling.
Because of the resulting hurry the altimeter was not set correctly and the aircraft crashed on approach to Sebha, Libya. All occupants (several dozen people) were killed.
