Самолет, который был зафрахтован пакистанской компанией Royal Airlines, принадлежал грузинской компании Global Georgian Airways. На борту находились 8 членов экипажа – 5 россиян, 2 украинца и 1 пакистанец, которые все погибли. После авиакатастрофы стало известно, что Ил-76 был взят пакистанской авиакомпанией в лизинг у Грузии и использовался для транспортировки продовольствия для коалиционных сил в Афганистане, а направлялся он в тот день на американскую военно-воздушную базу в Баграме."
