Cavok Air flight CVK7006 suffered engine vibrations and a loss of oil pressure in engine no.3 while descending through 3000 m. The aircraft, an An-12 transport plane, was en route from Marseille, France to Hassi Messaoud, Algeria.
The engine was shut down and an uneventful landing was made at Hassi Messaoud. During a visual inspection it was found that the no.3 engine fairing was damaged and the top and side cowlings were missing. Also damage was noted on the fuselage.

Based on the investigation materials the commission has reached the following conclusions:
- Engine failure was due to its internal destruction;
- Engine cowling and other damage to the aircraft occurred due to exceeding the maximum allowable vibration of engine №3.
Cause of the serious incident:
- Failure to turn off the engine after its failure;
- The Commission of Inquiry failed to establish the cause of the engine failure because of significant damage to damaged engine parts.
