Circumstances:
The twin engine aircraft left Bukavu-Kavumu Airport at 1342LT bound for Kama with two pilots, two passengers and a load of 1,500 kilos of books. Some ten minutes later, crew changed his frequency and no further contact was established. The aircraft failed to arrive in Kama, Maniema Province, so SAR operations were conducted. The crew of two helicopters from the same operator spotted the debris of the aircraft on Monday 25 August in the region of Mulume Munene, some 30 km southwest of Bukavu. It is confirmed the aircraft was destroyed by impact forces and post crash fire. All four occupants have been killed.
