The Boeing 707-330C cargo plane, owned by Azza Transport and operated by Sudan Airways, was on a cargo flight from Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, bound to Khartoum, Sudan. Six crewmembers were onboard. The plane was destroyed when it crashed in a desert area immediately after takeoff, killing everyone onboard.
The images from an airport surveillance camera show the Boeing 707 apparently departing normally to Khartoum. But within 15 seconds two frames of the footage show an unidentified object apparently dropping to the ground and, another 15 seconds later, the aircraft rapidly descending, in a steep bank, to the right of the departure path, and crashed.
The plane crashed near the Emirates Road, broke up and exploded. Meteorological data at the time of the accident shows no evidence of adverse weather conditions.
