Antonov 26 crashed in South Sudan

Mon Mar 20, 2017 2:32 pm

It seems 44 people died when a Fokker 50 of South Supreme Airlines crashed today at Wau after a flight from Jubba. RIP to all but let's hope for survivors. Source: http://www.airlive.net/breaking-passeng ... uth-sudan/
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

That's an An-26-100, not Fokker 50.
Likely either EK-26310 or EK-26710

What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived.

AvHerald is wrong.
That tail section belongs to an Antonov

Indeed the tail is on an An-26. Can't change my post unfortunately, moderators can call it 'Antonov 26 crashed...' please

avherald confirms its an An32. Good work guys! My aircraft recognition skills need polishing.

Another good news.. all passengers are alive. Avherald updated. Quite a miracle, looking at the condition of tail..

"A South Supreme Airlines Antonov AN-26, further details unknown, suffered a landing accident at Wau Airport (South Sudan) and burst into flames. All 44 occupants were rescued alive, 17 or 18 have been taken to local hospitals with injuries."

Good job that everyone lived threw this.

Apparently it burned out, not like this when it crashed.

Negative. They confirm it's an An26.

Glad to hear every one is alive. Assuming most of those are hard working relief volunteers providing food and healthcare for 4 Million, good karma always has its benefits.

No, it's got a couple of hundred cycles left before its D-check.

Good that the reporting mistake was from bad to good news...

When I saw the first picture I thought it was some kind of fire which ravaged the wreck (and could still have killed everyone, of course), definitely not a high speed impact with the tail in such a good shape. Also it looked on the airport premises.

Re: Antonov 26 crashed in South Sudan

There seems to be some questions regarding the reg of the aircraft and the airline. S9-TLZ is what's painted on the rear part of the fuselage (in the red stripe), but that reg isn't active in the official registry it seems. Is this really the official S9 registry? : http://www.inac.st/index.php/ct-menu-item-45 If so, there are only two S9 regged frames, and they're not Antonovs. Also, the airline "South Supreme Airlines" seems to have ceased its operations in October 2015. Is there a way to verify that? Have they restarted operations? Is this actually an aircraft that was deregistered and shouldn't fly or is it registered somewhere else, just that we can't see that reg in the pictures?

https://radiotamazuj.org/en/article/air ... outh-sudan

There seems to be two An-26 frames owned by "South Supreme Airlines" in Sudan/South Sudan according to http://rzjets.net:

EK-26310 An-26 msn 13310 South Supreme Airlines
http://russianplanes.net/id97453
EK-26804 An-26 msn 8004 Sudan South Supreme Airlines
http://russianplanes.net/id132572

Comparing the tail paintings of the two above and the accident plane, it seems the painting on the accident plane is quite different. Which one is it, is it really one of the two EK regged frames? I can't find any history on the S9-TLZ reg!

Listed above in this thread, but not the same airline(?):
EK-26710 An-26 msn 12710 South Airlines (Armenia)
