It was around election time in DRC when this one got w/o (Oct/Nov 2011). It took off from Shabunda (FZMW) with 3 crew and 16 pax. The aircraft suffered an engine failure and had to return to FZMW for a forced landing, during which it ended up in the ditch next to the strip. Everybody walked away without injuries. It was a effective combination of loud out prayers and Russian craftsmanship.
