According to preliminary data provided by the French agency, six people died during the plane crash - five crew members and one passenger. The plane was chartered by an election commission to deliver election materials to the city of Chikapu.

At the same time, the TASS news agency, citing the Russian ambassador to the DRC, Aleksey Stebov, reports that according to unconfirmed reports, the Russian crew drove the plane down. There were a total of twenty-three people aboard the An-26, which fell 35 kilometers from Kinshasa Airport, including three crew members, allegedly Russians, the ambassador said by telephone.

Search and rescue operations are currently underway. The cause of the crash is currently unknown.

Earlier it was reported that the An-26 1984 cargo plane of the year stopped communicating on Thursday evening, allegedly being in 40 kilometers from Kinshasa International Airport.

      Yes, the whole of Africa is an aviation cemetery, about ten years ago in Somalia the IL-18 was laid out on the runway, the side that my father served at one time, and made a couple of flights to Romania.

      It is unlikely that the guys, men probably who are already over 55, the ceiling of 71 is possible.

          They don’t understand correctly. Summer flies will not appreciate it, rather stubborn and wayward people, figs than you will convince and will stand your ground, these are not boys but real MUZHIK! You can freely breed and convince a boy, it is peculiar to young people.

    where only ours does not wind around the world! There is probably no corner of the world, wherever the Russian or his grave is. It’s a pity that this is happening

    If there was a "normal state", everyone should be returned to a good salary, let the young be trained, they have HUGE experience, in different situations, and we will soon find ourselves without our "pilots" ... It's a shame, damn it ...

    The blame will definitely be blamed on the crew. Recognize a technical malfunction = recognize the inability to service Ukrainian aircraft. They won’t do it.

    Not from a good life, our guys fly there ... with the mess that is going on in our airlines and the requirements of the Federal Air Transport Agency, this state of affairs is not surprising. A pilot or other flying special is a piece of goods, with the collapse of Soviet aviation, they forgot it, now it is ruled by the differential managers who see the plane only in the pictures in their office. And a man who has learned to fly and fly himself should not look for a job as a taxi driver in the city but as a pilot in China or Africa ... The guys of eternal flight ..

      DEFECTive managers act on the box every other day, hold press conferences spreading palm oil on the ears of viewers.
      From a leading industrial power, Russia has been turned into a territory with zombified residents subject to genocide by the aforementioned. So far, by inertia, something is still being created in Russia. But ... Until the people come to their senses, Russia will be milked to bloody streams. There will be no aviation, no pilots, no engineers, no happy families - nothing will happen. Only pipes, towers, quarries, tankers, wagons with ore going beyond the cordon, wastelands in places of forests, wastelands in places of fields and dry rivers and "Kiselevs" for digital broadcasting.

    They say that in the civil aviation of the Russian Federation there is a large deficit of pilots. Is it how bad then are the conditions of our airlines that pilots in Africa work?

      Moreover, they flee from our aviation from all airlines, including Aeroflot, not even because of money, but from working conditions and bestial attitude to the flight crew. Processing and violation of sanitary norms, deprivation of allowances for any reason, late payments, cutting travel expenses, etc.

    ... Couldn't these both cases - today and March 6, 2018 - be the result of "running-in" by some foreign experts of portable or well-hidden electronic warfare suppression systems for avionics?
    Is it possible, after the accident (having found all that remains of avionics), to somehow determine indirectly (by sensitive devices / complex electronic coordination and control nodes) whether there was an external influence? Does someone have an approximate idea about this (if this is not a state secret)?

    Well, in most cases it is the crew error that is the cause. In the late 90s, I remember very carefully studying the book "Pilot Errors: Human Factors". It summarizes a very interesting experience of investigating disasters. Yes, you don't have to go far: open almost a second accident and you will see the reasons: drunken flight, lowering below a safe altitude on the route, straightening the route, leaving the airfield in an unexpected manner, overload, extremely rear centering, etc. (for small aircraft); for a bigger side, a gentleman's set: approach below the minimum of the PIC and a / p, going under the glide path, an inoperative POS during icing, erroneous actions of the flight mechanic, pilot, stalls at supercritical angles of attack, etc.
    In fact, there are not very many technical failures (although Li-2, Il-14, An-2 and helicopters have enough), mostly errors.
