Unfallbericht:
An Antonov 26 passenger plane, operated by South Supreme Airlines, suffered a landing accident at Wau Airport, South Sudan.
The aircraft was consumed by fire and all aboard survived.
The accident occurred as the flight was attempting to land on runway 27 in less than favourable visibility. The left hand main landing gear reportedly impacted a fire truck that was located besides the runway. The aircraft then burst into flames.

According to the Juba Airport general manager, the aircraft took off from Juba at 14:07, bound for Wau. He stated there were 44 passengers: 39 adults, one child and four infants along with five crew members.
South Supreme Airlines said the plane had been carrying five crew members and 40 passengers. In some media the airline reported that 24 passengers disembarked the plane at its first stop in Aweil. That would have meant that the aircraft travelled over 770 km with an intermediate stop in about eighty minutes time.
