Descripción:
The Convair was taking off for a flight to Mbuji-Mayi when unusual noise was heard. The takeoff was aborted but the plane overran the runway and collided with an embankment. The takeoff was being performed up-slope. Normally takeoffs at Tshikapa are performed down-slope due to the significant slope of the 1000 m runway.
