Narrative:
The Antonov crash-landed at El Fasher (ELF), coming to rest near the runway 05 threshold. The nr.1 engine was destroyed.
The rebel National Redemption Front (NRF) claimed it had shot down the airplane near Sayah, but this was apparently not the case since the El Fasher Airport was closed briefly and the Antonov was seen damaged next to the runway that same day.
