October 2015: News Item A-1: "Egyptian Tristar Air Cargo crashes in Somalia" by (ATW) Alan Dron, October 13, 2015.
ACCDT: Tristar Air Cargo (TZZ) Airbus A300B4-203F (CF6-50C2) (129, /81 SU-BMZ) - - see photo "TZZ-A300B4-203F - 2008-02.jpg" crashed near the Somali capital Mogadishu around 1930 local time on October 12, according to local reports.
Local news agency "Goobjoog News" carried pictures from the scene, some 12nm/22km northwest of Mogadishu’s Aden Adde airport, showing the aircraft registration as (SU-BMZ). According to specialist websites, the registration belongs to an A300B4-203F of Cairo-based Tristar Air Cargo (TZZ) and is believed to be (TZZ)’s sole equipment.
An official at Tristar Air Cargo (TZZ) in Cairo said the only company manager authorized to talk on the matter was at Egypt’s Civil Aviation Ministry (ECAM) and was unavailable.
A Somali government spokesman, quoted by "Goobjoog News," said the six people on board the aircraft suffered minor injuries in what was described as a forced landing. The (ECAM) said the aircraft had made several attempts to land at the airport before putting down in a field. The aircraft is believed to have flown from Ostend in Belgium to Cairo before traveling on to Mogadishu.
News Item A-2: Tristar Air ((ICAO) Code: TSY, based at Cairo International) (TZZ) has been forced to suspend operations following the crash of its sole aircraft, a 35 year-old A300BF, about 22km northwest of Mogadishu Airport on Tuesday, October 13.
Airbus A300B4-203F (CF6-50C2) (129, /81 SU-BMZ) was in-bound into the Somali capital as flight TSY810 routed from Ostend via Cairo International when problems with its landing gear forced it to make several approaches into Mogadishu all of which were unsuccessful. With inadequate fuel reserves on-board, the aircraft could not divert. It subsequently ran out of fuel resulting in the forced landing.
Of the six crew on-board, none were seriously injured although the aircraft is a write-off.
Incorporated in 1998, the Egyptian cargo operator specializes in the haulage of freight between Europe and Africa and had been ferrying United Nations-related goods at the time of the accident.
