The crew was performing a flight from Malakal to Wau on behalf of the World Food Program. Shortly after takeoff, in initial climb, an unexpected situation forced the captain to attempt an emergency landing. The aircraft crash landed in a field past the runway end, slid for several yards and came to rest in flames. All four crew members were able to evacuate the aircraft before it was completely destroyed by fire.
