A cargo plane, presumably of Russian origin, has crashed following a flight from Sharjah to Khartoum. It appears to have been an aid flight. Seven aboard have perished as the pilots tried to swerve the aircraft away from residential area before impact.

R.I.P.

Given that there were 7 on board, an IL76 makes sense.

It is unlikely that there would be passengers and a crew of 5 or 6 plus 1 or 2 loadmasters would make the number. The fact that the crew were Russian or East European also suggests IL76 or AN12.

They were a fantastic crew professionally and socially, all of us here are very sad for the loss of them.

For the record, they actually got the plane on the ground fine with only one engine, however the area that they though was flat was actually filled with large holes excavated for mud huts. The plane fell into and popped out of several of those, breaking it apart.
