CN-TKN is a 46 year old Dassault Falcon 10, which first started out life with Ingersoll Rand Service Company in 1979.

The aircraft has had multiple operators throughout it’s time, mainly in the United States, before being delivered to Alfa Air, the current operator, in January 2008, as per data from onespotter.com.

As per @Fl360aero on X, it is understood that CN-TKN was operating a flight between Thailand and Moscow with multiple fuel stops enroute, the most recent being in Gaya Airport.

CN-TKN is understood to have been an Air Ambulance flight, with the aircraft making a low fuel diversion attempt to Kulob Airport in Tajikistan, which unfortunately was unsuccessful, resulting in the crash in the Topkhana mountain of the Afghanistan Badakhstan state a few hours ago.

At this stage, it is understood, as per AirLive, that the Dassault Falcon 10’s two engines malfunctioned, hence the request for a diversion into the Tajikistan-based airfield.

This remains a developing story at this stage. As soon as we have more information pertinent to this accident, then we will update this article accordingly via timestamps.
