Unfallbericht:
The twin-engined Let plane was chartered from Kush Air by Sudanese Women in Development and Peace to deliver relief supplies to a school project in Ayod. The plane was flown by two pilots from New Zealand. According to the owner of the plane cargo shifted after takeoff, causing the centre of gravity to shift to a point where the plane stalled and crashed.
A senior aid official in Sudan confirmed that six people died and four survived the accident, despite earlier reports of as many as 12 or 14 dead.
Earlier reports quoted that 9XR-DC was the plane involved, while later reports spoke about 9XR-EF.

Inital news reports named the airline "Air Cush", likely meaning the Kush Air airline from South Sudan.
