Southern Sudan Air Connection Beechcraft 1900C plane crash
The Beech 1900, rented from the charter company Southern Sudan Air Connection, departed Wau, Sudan, on a flight to Juba, Sudan, via Rumbek. The airplane
was carrying 18 passengers, including key members of the southern Sudanese government, and 2 crewmembers. The plane crashed near Rumbek (the provincial
capital of Lakes State, north of Juba) killing all onboard.
The plane crash while it was on last leg from Rumbek to Juba. The cause of the crash is probably due to a technical failure with both engines of the plane. It is believed a double engine failure forced the pilot to perform an emergency landing, but the plane impacted the ground violently. The wreckage was bad and it takes time to open it up completely.
