The flight which  had just taken off from Boufarik, for a military base in Bechar, Southwest Algeria, was scheduled to make a stop in Tindouf in Southern Algeria, home to many refugees from

 

the Western Sahara, a disputed territory bordered  with Morocco.

This is not the first aviation disaster that Algeria have suffered. In December 2012, 2 military planes collided during a training exercise, killing both pilots. In February 2014, another military plane crashed  with only one survivor out of the 77 persons aboard, consisting of military personnel and their families.
