Thank you for the link to The Villager. This article, a generally good piece of journalism, tells us a few things:
- There had been a communication from the cockpit to Botswana ATC
- The communication identified weather-related problems
- The crash site is possibly fairly close to Rundu airfield. Could there have been an attempted landing?
- The article reminds us that LAM is banned from EU airspace.

I note that, formally, the flight ban relates to issues concerning national oversight rather than any issues specific to LAM. However, casual observation at Maputo, Mozambique, reveals what, to the untrained eye, appear to be interesting landing manoeuvres.

reason for edit: correct stupid error pointed out by next poster.
