On March 9, 2007 a company Il-76TD (EW-78826) sustained substantial damage after being hit by a missile while on approach to Mogadishu International Airport (MGQ). Later that month Il-76TD EW-78849 flew to Mogadishu to deliver equipment to cannibalize EW-78826 and to salvage usable parts.
On March 23, EW-78849 was to be flown back to Minsk with a refueling stop at Djibouti (JIB). Shortly after takeoff three missiles were fired at the plane. Reportedly one of the missiles hit the wing. Control was lost and the airplane crashed.
