L410 down about 150nm SW of Kindu. Apparently a night landing after a leak of some kind. No fatalities and both occupants (crew) OK.

crashed plane in Rwanda

There's a crasehed 3D-KIK laying next to the runway in Kisenyi/Rwanda, right next to Goma/Congo airport...totally burned out.
Seems like it had a blown tire and slid off the rwy...gear collapsed...started burning.

I have pictures if someone is interested.

Hey man ( flyheli )
That A/C crached about 2 months a go . Its was the pilots frist time into Goma , the wheather was bad , So when he pop out of the clouds he saw a runway .Goma cleared him to land , on short final he thought F$%^ this is short . He landed 12 meter befor the runway and then the gear collapsed. The pilots got out and the A/C burned to the ground

The L410 pax where found by the UN coz there saw people walking out of the bush , To my understanding people got killed and owner thought his A/C was on its way to Angola
