Cargo AN26 at Yambio on Oct 16th 2019, overran runway on landing
Last Update: October 16, 2019 / 18:00:24 GMT/Zulu time
The United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) provided assistance to pull the aircraft back onto the runway and to the apron. UNMISS reported there were no injuries.
The operator of the aircraft SP-401 is unclear, as is the history of the aircraft (serial number not determined). There are pointers the aircraft could be operated by South Sudan's Air Force, the United Nations or some other operator. Several Internet aircraft history resources speculate that SP-401 could be former EK-26006 (however, see Accident: Coco South Sudan AN26 at Maban on Aug 28th 2017, runway excursion on landing, aircraft burned down) or EK-26005. A ground observer in Juba reported he had seen SP-401 at the military apron of Juba Airport in the past but never seen the aircraft flying. At the same time he had seen an AN-26 registration EK-26005 at Juba Airport (operated by Skiva Air).
Yambio features a dirt runway of approximately 1000 meters/3300 feet length at an elevation 2375 feet/724 meters in approximate orientation 03/21.
