  • The twin engine aircraft departed Dundo Airport at 1658LT bound for Luanda. About 15 minutes later, the crew reported engine problems and apparently one of them caught fire in flight. The airplane crashed shortly later near Cuilo, about 170 km southwest of Dundo. All seven occupants have been killed.
