On the evening of November 30, an Ilyushin Il-76T plane crashed when attempting to land at the Maya-Maya Airport in Brazzaville, the capital of the Republic of the Congo.

The plane was on a cargo flight from Pointe Noire to the capital when it crashed short of the runway in bad weather.

All six crew members, five of them from Armenia, one police officer on board the aircraft, and 26 people on the ground were killed, and 14 people on the ground were injured.

Aljazeera initially reported that the plane belonged to the Trans Air Congo company and that it was carrying out cargo runs for another local airway Aéro-Service. Trans Air quickly denied that the plane was theirs. It later turned out that the pane belonged to the Armenian company Rich Airways.
