This time in Point Noire; a landing An-12 suffered a brake malfunction on landing and ploughed straight into what looks like an ex-Iraqi Airways 727. Two crew seriously injured, both aircraft w/o.

I guess whoever operates it now (or operated it until it was scrunched) decided to keep the basic IA livery and put their own titles on it. Some small, local operator, I would think.

The 727-200 damaged would be 9L-LEF, cn 21482. The Canadian titles also appear to have Airways or Cargo next to it if you see ther torn out part. There was, IIRC, an operator that was using Canadian in their name in Africa about 5 years ago on an An-12 or 26...

By my count, that's the 38th AN-12 destroyed since 1/1/2000.

The AN12 is easily the aircraft involved most in accidents. But remember all these aircraft are 40 years old or more.
Rivalled only by its smaller sister, the AN-24/26/32.



Who is the operator of this Antonov?

The tail has been repainted as well, not the green Iraqi tail anymore. According to aviation-safety.net the operator is Teebah Airlines (an Iraqi airline based in Amman, registered in Sierra Leone, now that sounds trustworthy).

NA, the LET-410 is common as well...

The AN12 might just be fixable with a new nose.

The B727 looks as if it will break if they try to move it.

Probably best to cannabilise it and scrap the hulk.

After all a "new" B727 must be fairly cheap.

Left wing is also bent on the An-12 and you only see one side of the fuselage.
B727 was made in 1978, I donĀ“t think anyone repair such old plane with this severe damage?

Also, all 4 props damaged (engines too?) and left main gear collapsed (APU is in that wheel fairing). It looks like they just pulled the two airframes apart rather than waiting on an engineering crew. They're both toast.

What I'd like to know is what made that second gash on the right side of the plane because the #3 engine doesn't look damaged enough have caused it and if it had been caused by the left main gear I would asume that the damaged would be greater.

It is rumored that AN-12s often shut down three engines after landing and taxi on one engine only.

With the frequency at which those planes these days are raining down on mostly African soil it is easy to speculate that they are often operated with several systems (electric, hydraulic etc.) in inoperative state, relying on redundant systems only. And that way can end up with no brakes after having shut down the "wrong" engines.

Two of three flight deck crews on the AN were seriously injured.
