The Antonov descended towards Bukavu in low clouds and struck a mountainside. It crashed in a forest and caught fire.
On 9 August 2006, the Antonov Aviation Scientific Technical Complex informed the State Administration of Ukraine for Aviation Safety Oversight of Antonov aircraft whose service life had expired and which, therefore, were no longer considered to be airworthy. The crashed An-28 (1AJ008-21) was one of those aircraft.
