Antonov 72 being removed from Luzamba runway after a gear-up landing. The Russian pilot landed too deep on the short runway and executed a go-around. On his second try to land he somehow forgot to extend his landing gear. The aircraft was stripped of its engines and valuable avionics and scrapped on the Luzamba rubbish dump.
