Circumstances:
The crew completed a belly landing at Kinshasa-N'Djili Airport due to technical problems with undercarriage. After touchdown on runway 24 at N'Djili, the aircraft skidded for several yards and eventually veered to the right before coming to rest in a grassy area. All 26 occupants were uninjured while the aircraft was damaged beyond repair. According to local press reports, the left main gear was sheared off during takeoff at Kinshasa-Ndolo few minutes earlier, forcing the crew to divert to N'Djili Airport to attempt an emergency landing.
