An Aykavia Antonov AN-32A on behalf of the World Food Programme (WFP), registration EK-32120 performing a charter flight from Juba to Bor (South Sudan) with 3 crew, landed on Bor's dirt runway 01 but veered left off the runway and came to a stop on right main gear, nose gear, left fuselage and wing tip. There were no injuries, the aircraft sustained substantial damage.

The airport reported the aircraft came in fine but the left main gear collapsed on touchdown causing the aircraft to veer left off the runway.

A ground observer reported he believed from how we saw the aircraft that the left main gear was not down while the aircraft was just before touchdown.

Bor Aerodrome features an unpaved runway 01/19 of about 1300 meters/4300 feet length.
