As recently published by AEROIN, the new airline received its first aircraft of this model in August 2020, and announced the expansion of the fleet in September 2021 with the purchase of the second example.
And it was this second jet that was making the flight from Lubumbashi to Kolwezi this Wednesday, with 24 passengers and 5 crew, when it landed at its destination around 1:30 pm local time (11:30Z) and suffered the incident.
The plane overran the end of the runway (“runway overrun”) in wet weather conditions and stopped on rough terrain. There were no injuries. There was still no information about damage to the aircraft until the publication of this article.
