Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. On 15 April 2008, Hewa Bora Airways Flight 122, a McDonnell Douglas DC-9-51 plane crashed into a residential and market area of Goma of the Democratic Republic of the Congo - immediately south of Goma International Airport. The eastern part of the DRC has been war-torn for decades, as various factions seek control of mineral resources. Goma is a center for the air shipping of cassiterite (tin oxide ore) from Nord-Kivu. The European Union has placed all DRC airlines on its List of airlines banned in the EU. HBA had held a single exemption for a single Boeing 767-266ER tail number 9Q-CJD, construction number 193H-1209, but that too had been removed on 11 April 2008. Very similar crashes in the DRC the previous October in the capital, Kinshasa and in 1996 also came down in residential or market areas. Because the DRC has so little passable roadway, most freight is moved by air and markets are common near airstrips. HBA operates a number of different aircraft types, none of them modern. This aircraft was 31 years old.
