Another Crash In Congo

Sat Sep 10, 2005 6:45 pm

The Black series goes on. And it happened in Congo again like last monday. Yahoo reports the crash of an Air Kasai aircraft, with 13 or more people dead. Air Kasai is a small airline operating An-32, a Islander and probably a single Viscount.

Scary comment from the article.

This was the fourth air accident involving planes of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in less than a week.

R.I.P Doesn't look good for African aviation.
