Flydubai B738 at Juba on Apr 28th 2021, go around due to ATC error
Last Update: May 3, 2021 / 14:23:19 GMT/Zulu time
A passenger reported the captain indicated they had needed to go around due to an ATC error causing a "near miss". There had been problems for months already due to the civil controllers being on strike and military personnel providing air traffic control services since.
According to Mode-S data a German glider aircraft (with no engines at all and not being towed) tail number D-KWKS lined up runway 13 at that very moment, subsequently departed climbing to FL150 (with about 300 knots over ground), the aircraft obviously using a fake transponder ID.
