Crashed on a salestour to Westafrica. The aircraft had been repaired at Tesselamane (private airstrip 320km N of Agadez). The aircraft was flown to Agadez by a well know belgian mercenary en route to Kongo. Approaching the field in Agadez from the south at an altitude of less than 20m the pilot watched the windsock as conditions were gusty. While curving to the left and distracted by the windsock he got too low and touched down prematurely. The aircraft hit shrubbery, the landing gear and wings were sheared of and the hull came to rest next to the airfield commandants office. The pilot suffered slight injuries.
