Mbuji-Mayi airport (DR Congo): the fatal accident that was predicted


In August 2015, the Korongo Airlines 737 had its tail dangerously damaged during take off from Mbuji-Mayi.

Two weeks ago, Congo Airways suspended its A320 operations to/from Mbuji-Mayi because of severe damage to the runway: http://www.radiookapi.net/2015/12/09/actualite/societe/congo-airways-suspend-ses-vols-destination-de-mbuji-mayi

And then, this afternoon, at least seven people on the ground were killed when a Service Air A310 coming from Lubumbashi totally missed its landing on that crazy runway, ending up 500m past the runway.
