Crew was performing a humanitarian flight from Juba to Rubkona on behalf of the International Organisation for Migration, part of the UNMISS, the United Nations Mission in South Sudan. Owned by 748 Air Services, the aircraft was leased to its sister company Global Airlift. After landing, aircraft seems to be unstable and went out of control.
