Crashed near Taroudant, Atlas Mountains at 9,900feet. Regretably 8 fatalities. Some confusion about route. Aviation Safety Network has it routing Agadir-Algiers. Local Press - (Maghreb Arabe Press) has it routing Algiers to Dakar, making a stopover in Agadir, due to technical problems.

Recceguy,

1. Because this was the detail in the Aviation Safety Network report.

2. Depends on what you call big. Comnpared to the IL-76 it is a small(er) aircraft. Looks about the size of a C130-J.
