The four engine aircraft was performing a flight from Khartoum to Al Fashir with 16 passengers and a crew of six on behalf of the Sudanese National Army. Few minutes after he departed Khartoum-Haj Yusuf Airport, the crew informed ATC about an engine failure and was cleared to return. Few seconds later, a second engine failed on the same side and the crew attempted to make an emergency landing. The aircraft crashed in a desert area located about 22 km from Khartoum Airport. The aircraft disintegrated on impact. 13 occupants were killed while nine other were seriously injured. Few days later, two passengers died from their injuries.
Double engine failure for unknown reasons.
