South African government is investigating circumstances that could have caused its plane C130 to crash at Goma International Airport in DRC on Thursday in what witnesses described as a failed landing.
The South African National Defense Force (SANDF) confirmed on Thursday that one of its planes deployed in the DRC as part of logistical support to the South African contingent of MONUSCO had an accident at Goma airport (North -Kivu).
Reports indicate that the aircraft was returning from a mission to Beni. The RSA Army confirms that no deaths were recorded in this incident.
The SANDF also reports that no one was injured and a commission of inquiry will be convened to investigate the circumstances of the incident.
