A Dornier 228-202 aircraft sustained damaged in a runway excursion at Goma Airport (GOM), D.R. Congo.
The aircraft operated on a domestic passenger service from Goma to Butembo when the left hand main gear failed to deploy prior to landing at Butembo. The flight crew decided to return to Goma. Part of the runway at Goma was foamed by fire services and the aircraft performed a forced landing, eventually swerving to the left. The aircraft departed the left side of runway 35 and came to rest perpendicular to the runway across a ditch.
