The US Department of State had leased an Antonov 32 plane for duties in Afghanistan. It was carrying a team from the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs when it landed at Lashkar Gah. Reportedly a truck crossed the runway when the airplane landed. The Antonov swerved off the runway, and slid headlong into a nearby nomad settlement.
