Separatist Insurgents Open Fire on Cameroon Airlines

Dec 3, 2019

On the morning of 1 December 2019, Anglophone separatist insurgents opened fire on Cameroon Airlines (Camair-Co) flight 272 during its approach to Bamenda Airport (FKKV/BPC), located in the country’s Northwest province. The Xian MA-60 aircraft — en route from the city of Douala — landed safely and no individuals on board were injured. Authorities grounded the targeted aircraft due to damage sustained to the fuselage. Flight operations at the facility were not significantly disrupted as a result of the incident. Although Anglophone separatist insurgents are active in Cameroon’s Northwest and Southwest provinces, such attacks on civilian aircraft are less common.
