Plane crashes in South Sudan, all passengers survive

Passenger plane crash

It was not clear how many passengers were on board or if there were any deaths.

An aircraft engineer at the Wau airport, Paul Charles, said the plane tried to land in bad weather Monday and hit a damaged truck on the side of the runway.

"I don't have any information", said Gabriel Ngang, the manager of South Supreme Airlines, the owner of the plane.

Former Labour MP David Shearer, now head of the United Nations mission in South Sudan, said peacekeepers worked with local emergency workers to evacuate passengers from the plane.

When the plane crashed, its door flew open, which allowed the pilot and rescue crews to get everybody out, he said. "But when it touched the ground, it immediately burst into a huge flame".

The plane was headed from the capital, Juba, to Wau.

Images showed the plane's tail end had been separated from the commercial vehicle and was clouded in smoke as teams rushed to spray the area down with large hoses.

The South Supreme Airliner came down at Wau Airport at around 3pm local time.
