On 9 November 2012, an EADS CASA C-295 of the Algerian Air Force crashed in the Lozère department of southern France, near the town of Trélans.[1]

The C-295, a military transport aircraft built by Airbus Defence and Space, that operated the flight was registered 7T-WGF and had been delivered to the Algerian Air Force in 2006.[2] It was en route from the Paris–Le Bourget Airport to Blida Airport in Algeria with a cargo for the Bank of Algeria when it crashed and caught fire at about 15:45 local time.[1][3][4] There were six people on board, five members of the Algerian military and one civilian from the Bank of Algeria.[1] Four crewmembers were confirmed dead by first responders, and the two remaining were later presumed to have died.[5][2] The aircraft was written off as a hull loss as a result of the crash.[4]
