A plane has crashed into the Atlantic Ocean shortly after takeoff from the Félix-Houphouët-Boigny International Airport near Abidjan, Ivory Coast at around 8:30 am local time.

At least four people were killed when the propeller-engine cargo plane crashed into the sea. Firefighters and rescue divers removed two bodies from the plane, which had broken into several pieces and come to rest near the beach. Two other bodies were visible in the wreckage.

Reports suggest it was a Ukrainian or Russian turboprop Antonov plane.

The crash occurred during a storm with heavy rain and lightning and rescuers were hampered by rough seas. Though Abidjan’s airport is located in a heavily populated area, it did not appear there were any victims on the ground.

The plane was carrying freight for the French army, Koaci.com reported.

One aviation analyst claimed the aircraft was a Soviet-designed Antonov model belonging to a charter company used by the UN.

Its tail appeared to have shorn off from section of the plane where the wings join the fuselage.

Insignia on the tail suggested it may belong to Valan International Cargo Charter, whose logo is a distinctive winged white ‘V’ on a blue background.
