A Britten-Norman BN-2A Islander aircraft was destroyed in an accident near Chirundu, Zambia. Both occupants survived the accident.
The pilot apparently attempted to carry out a forced landing on the Lusaka - Chirundu Road. It missed several vehicles and crashed near a cliff.
The aircraft was seen at Lanseria, South Africa on July 3 and was likely flown from Lanseria back to Congo at the time of the accident. Zambian media reported that the airplane was en route to Lubumbashi.
