Narrative:
A BAe-748 cargo plane delivering humanitarian aid to South Sudan crash-landed at Rubkona Airport, killing one crew member and seriously injuring three others.
The airplane was chartered by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) from 748 Air Services, that in turn chartered the plane from Global Airlift.
The wing of the aircraft hit one of the gate posts at the airport. This fractured the wing and lead to a loss of fuel. The plane then scraped the tops of white vehicles that contained passengers' luggage. The impact with the cars caused the cars to ignite, as well as the plane. When it came to a halt one wing and an engine were still aflame.
