The crash is confirmed of the McDonnell Douglas MD-83 flight, which embarked from Ouagadougou Airport in Burkina Faso for Algiers-Houari Boumediene Airport in Algeria. None of the six Spanish crew nor the 112 passengers survived. The current estimation is that the pilots encountered a sand storm, and redirected due to weather.
