Gulfstream G-IV Crash in Africa

Sadly it is being reported that Gulfstream G-IV (c/n 1104) N2SA (ex-N700GD) operated by Lima Delta Company Trustee has crashed at Bukavu-Kavumu Airport (BKY/FZMA) in the Democratic Republic of the Congo killing both pilots and 1 passenger and seriously injuring 3 other passengers. 

The aircraft apparently was landing when it veered off the runway traveling down an embankment then breaking in two. Reports say the flaps were down and the thrust reverser's were deployed at the time of the crash. 

No further information is available at this time.
