2007 Free Airlines Let-410 crash

On June 21, 2007 an overloaded Free Airlines Let-410UVP (registration 9Q-CEU) in Karibu Airways livery crashed shortly after takeoff from Kamina Town (fr:"Kamina Ville") for Lubumbashi, Democratic Republic of Congo. Landing in a swamp east of the unpaved strip, the aircraft came to rest inverted with wheels and wings above the water.

Free Airlines and Karibu Airways (also cited as the operator) are both on the List of air carriers banned in the EU. [ [http://ec.europa.eu/transport/air-ban/pdf/list_en.pdf The EU ban] ]

The Let-410UVP is only rated for a maximum of 17 passengers, but there were 21 people aboard, including three crew. The aircraft was previously registered as 5R-MGO by the now-defunct Madagascar Flying Services. It was reported to have previously crashed in southern Sudan in 2005.

There was one fatality, Mbuyu Mibanga, a deputy in the National Assembly of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Four others were badly injured.


After another crash occurred in August 2007, the licenses of Karibu Airways and pilot Isaac Besongo were subsequently suspended.
