Just in: Soviet era Antonov An-26 suffers in-flight loss of the No.1 propeller


Just in: Soviet era Antonov An-26 suffers in-flight loss of the No.1 propeller.

A Soviet era Antonov An-26 aircraft suffered an in-flight loss of its No.1 propeller while cruising at over 20,000 feet and had to make an emergency landing yesterday May 20, 2021 in South Sudan.

The aircraft landed safely at the International Airport in Juba, without any incident or casualties on board.

The Sudanese Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has therefore issued a directive to all operators of the Antonov AN-26 type aircraft to cease operations with immediate effect pending investigations into the cause of the loss of the propellers from engine No.1.

The said aircraft type is therefore grounded until further notice in South Sudan.

The only exceptions to this directive are those aircraft used on UNMISS/UN mission travels.
