Aerolift Monday March 9, 2009
The cargo plane carrying and water purification equipment crashed into Lake Victoria shortly after taking off. Possibly caused by one or a combination of factors, including loss of engine power, malfunction of the flight control system, pilot impairment, inattentiveness to altitude and inadequate handling of the aircraft. An investigation found that the navigator used a forged license and that the aircraft and engines were beyond their service life.
