Chances are that its C295 7T-WGF, which departed Le Bourget around 1400 enroute to Boufarik.
Last position I have for that flight is just north of the town mentioned in the Washington Post article.

Photographs on news reports show the aircraft is very severely damaged and broken up, not a good situation. Six reported as on board.

Best regards,

Jim



Erm, is this thing on?

Confirmed as a C295...

Saw this on the news and a witness saw the "classic" ball of fire going down.

Strange strange that this accident isn't covered more by international news agencies, isn't it?
I've read it today in a local newspaper where they wrote that some eyewitness saw the plane breaking up midair, again this seems a strange accident where probably we will never get to know what really happened. RIP to the people who perrished on board of this aircraft.

If it's just an accident (never believe break up in mid air and fireball stories) I'm sure we'll know, now if it's something sensible like a pilot committing suicide or similar, yeah a cover up is likely. Franco-Algerian relations are very complicated.

all on board confirmed dead.

mid-air break-up confirmed as plausible, witnesses saw a parachute come down, it was identified as the survival kit (liferaft) that was ejected during the suspected break-up.

Black boxes have been retrieved.

Very sad to hear. Unfortunately, third world aviation strikes again.

I guess this time an in-flight break-up is a possibility, as the debris are spread across a large zone in hilly terrain (meaning, in several "valleys" ). Although a big part of the fuselage is seen at the "main" crash site.
