Beschrijving:
Stalled off a tight left hand turn from 800 feet on final approach to Khartoum, spun into the ground and burst into flames. Fuel starvation, probably caused by a partial air lock due to surging of petrol in near empty tanks, was thought to have caused the port engine to cut on the turn.
