On a peaceful Saturday night in northern Greece, a plane caught fire and crashed, scattering debris in a nearby field.

Residents living near the crash site captured the moment the Ukrainian-based aircraft, Antonov-12, plummeted to the ground on July 16 near the city of Kavala, Greece. All eight crew members lost their lives.

An-12 is a Soviet-built turboprop aircraft owned and operated by cargo carrier Meridian LTD from Ukraine with a call sign MEM 3032.

The cargo plane was transporting munitions and explosive materials from Serbia to Bangladesh as part of an arms sale, Serbian Defense Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic told reporters on Sunday.
