In April 2000, during the Second Congo War (1998-2003), a Rwandan Air Force Antonov An-8 crashed on take-off from the airstrip, killing the crew of four and about 20 Rwandan soldiers, including a Rwanda Army major, two captains, and two lieutenants. Other reports placed the death toll as high as 57.
The cause was thought to be a birdstrike.
