Meridian flight 3032, an Antonov An-12BK cargo plane, crashed near Kavala, Greece.
The aircraft had departed Nis, Serbia, at 18:36 UTC, carrying 11.5 tons of ammunition to Dhaka in Bangladesh. Intermediate stops were planned at Amman, Riyadh and Ahmedabad.

At 21:26 local time (19:26 UTC), while over the Aegean Sea, the aircraft gradually began losing altitude after reaching 21,000 feet.
At 21:29 a 180-degree turn was initiated and the aircraft reached the coast line 12 minutes later. At that point, the aircraft began a right-hand turn with an increasing descent rate. In the final stages of the flight the aircraft reached a descent rate of 3000-4000 feet per minute until it crashed and broke up about 35 km west of Kavala Airport.
Local media report that the flight crew had radioed that one of the engines had failed.
