Wow, what a horrible ride. Two engines out on the same side below a certain speed and it's curtains. Even on the 707, two engines out below 190 kts and you're out of control. So losing two engines on the same side between V1 and 190 kts equals almost certain death (unless you abort-above-V1 and there's nothing to run into after the end of the runway). I suspect the Antonov 12 is even more marginal at low speed. RIP to the crew.

Btw - this aircraft's airworthiness certificate was revoked in 2007.

The Pointe Noire runway wasn't in very good shape last time I was there. Made for some pretty interesting landings, trying to avoid the bad spots. Some pilots came in pretty close to minimum because they wanted to keep the roll as short as possible.
I was more comforatable riding a DC-3 into that place than the modern stuff.
