Circumstances:
Shortly after takeoff from Goma Airport, while on a cargo flight to Bunia, the crew reported technical problems with the right engine and obtained the permission to return for an emergency landing. The crew landed long (about half down the runway) and after touchdown, the airplane was unable to stop within the remaining distance, overran and while contacting lava ground, the right main gear and the nose gear collapsed. The airplane came to rest with its right wing bent and all four crew members evacuated safely.
