A South Sudan Supreme Airlines Antonov AN-26, freight flight from Juba to Renk (South Sudan), suffered a runway excursion during landing at Renk. The pilot told local newspapers, a tyre burst during landing due to the poor runway conditions causing them to lose control of the aircraft. There were no injuries, the aircraft received minor damage.

According to ATDB South Sudan Supreme Airlines may have operated an AN-26 registration S9-TLW (registration invalid with certainty) former EK-26710 (MSN 12710).

The airline had, under its previous name South Supreme Airlines, lost another AN-26 registration S9-TLZ, see Accident: South Supreme AN26 at Wau on Mar 20th 2017, collided with fire truck on landing, ceased operation due to collapsing economy and restarted at some later time (presumably 2019) under the new name South Sudan Supreme Airlines.

Renk Airport is located at coordinates N11.7877 E32.8006 and features an unpaved runway of unknown length, satellite images of the aerodrome in 2017-2019, while clearly showing a helicopter at the airfield, do not show any structure long enough for a runway that an Antonov 26 could operate on.
