Hmm .... I'm not sure 7000' would suck people out. I feel the aircraft was perhaps a little higher. Nasty accident all the same.

according to me this was a nasty 'cleaning' operation by some lunatic. The Transport was chartered.

Very sad indeed, more on it here http://www.cnn.com/2003/WORLD/africa/05/09...aths/index.htmlThey say the Il-76 was at 33,000 feet when it happened, and lost its rear cargo door. Also witnesses say 400 people boarded the aircraft, another said when it happened the pilot told everyone to move to the front of the plane. He said he saw 40 people run to the front, but only 20 survived. 140 people are confirmed missing at this time.
