The An-12 was transporting about 18 tons of cargo, amongst others palm oil, from Kisangani (FKI) to Bukavu with a stopover at Goma (GOM). The airplane crash-landed at Goma, slid into a petrified lava flow beyond the runway and caught fire.
The crew reportedly consisted of two persons from Georgia, two from the Ukraine and one from Congo. The plane was owned by Georgian carrier Transaviaservice. The An-12's Certificate of Airworthiness had expired in March and had not been renewed.
