|Sudan plane bursts into flames,
dozens feared dead
Sudan/KHARTOUM - A Sudanese airliner Airbus A-310 (reg. ST-ATN) coming from Amman and Damascus burst into flames after landing in Khartoum on Tuesday night, killing at least 33 of the 214 people (203 passengers and 11 crew members) on board.
Doctors said the local mortuary had received 28 bodies by 3 a.m. on Wednesday and witnesses said they saw rescue teams remove five more bodies from the charred wreckage of the plane after daybreak.
The Civil Aviation Authority said it had counted 113 survivors but that other people had left the site of the incident and gone straight home without informing the authorities.
Presidential adviser Ghazi Salahaddin said that 50 to 60 people were unaccounted for.
The nationalities of the dead were not immediately known but diplomats who have examined the manifest said that almost all the names appear to be Arabic. Airport officials said they thought the vast majority were Sudanese.
A dust storm and heavy rain hit the airport on Tuesday and the plane was initially diverted to Port Sudan on the Red Sea.
There was an explosion in the airliner's right wing engine area. Sudanese television showed emergency workers using hoses to spray water on the burning fuselage of the airliner.
"The operation to recover bodies from the plane is going on now," police deputy director general Al Adel Ajeb said in a television interview. "It is a difficult operation because some bodies are completely burned and there are body parts."
Because the bad weather the plane then flew to the Red Sea city of Port Sudan before returning to Khartoum an hour later.
A survivor said the landing in Khartoum was "not normal" and that there was "an explosion in the right wing" two or three minutes after the plane landed.
Television pictures showed emergency escape chutes at the side of the blazing aircraft and ambulances on the tarmac.
"Whether (the fire was due to) a technical reason we don't know yet," airport director Yusuf Ibrahim told Sudanese TV.
"The plane was coming from Amman and Syria ... It landed safely at Khartoum airport and they talked to the control tower which told them where to taxi. At this moment an explosion happened," he said.
|33 пассажира загоревшегося
в Судане самолета погибли
10.06.2008//17:00 по Гринвичу
По меньшей мере 33 человека погибли из-за пожара на пассажирском самолете после его приземления в аэропорту столицы Судана города Хартум.
Самолет "Суданских авиалиний", совершавший рейс № 109 из столицы Иордании города Амман, во вторник вечером загорелся после приземления в международном аэропорту Хартума. На борту самолета, по данным местных властей, находилось около 200 человек.
По информации СУНА, на борту самолета Airbus А310 (ST-ATN) находились 203 человека, включая
11 членов экипажа.
Как рассказали очевидцы, возгорание произошло в одном из двигателей самолета, после чего пламя стремительно распространилось по всему корпусу самолета.
По словам руководителя международного аэропорта Хартума Юсуфа Ибрахима (Yusuf Ibrahim), самолет произвел успешную посадку, после чего по неизвестным причинам произошел взрыв одного из двигателей.
В настоящее время на месте происшествия работают пожарные и спасатели.
В мае этого года на юге Судана разбился самолет. Тогда погибли 24 человек, в том числе министр обороны Южного Судана Доминик Дим (Dominic Dim).
Летом 2003 года во время взлета в суданском городе Порт-Судан потерпел крушение самолет Boeing 737, также принадлежавший "Суданским авиалиниям". Жертвами катастрофы стали 115 человек.

|Судански самолет изгоря след
кацане в Хартум, Судан; 33 загинали
10.06.2008//17:00 по Гринуич
Пътнически самолет Airbus А310 (ST-ATN) на суданската авиокомпания Sudan Airways, изпълняващ полет 109 от Аман, Йордания, през Дамаск, Сирия, се запали след кацане на летището в Хартум, Судан. На борда на самолета е имало 203 пътници и 11-членен екипаж. В моргата са били приети 28 тела, а според свидетели още 5 овъглени са били извадени от горящия корпус от спасителните екипи. 14 пътници остават неоткрити и съдбата им е неясна.
Коментариите относно случилото се на летището се разминават в някои детайли.
Според някои пътници поради лошото време изразяващо се в проливен дъжд и пясъчна буря екипажът бил принуден да се отклони от маршрута и да кацне за около час на летището в Порт Судан. След преминаване на бурята излетели към летището в Хартум - дестинация на полета. По това време полосата там била мокра, с локви вода по нея. Според някои пътници кацането не протекло гладко. Според други самолетът дори напуснал очертанията на полосата. Според началника на летището лайнерът кацнал нормално и екипажът му вече уточнявал мястото за установяване с контролната кула когато внезапна експлозия от към страната на десния двигател и крилото стартирала бедствието. Повечето успели да се измъкнат невредими по аварийните трапове, но някои от по възрастните и децата станали жертва на бързо разпространилите се буйни пламъци обхванали целия самолет.

Грузовой Ил-76 разбился после взлета из аэропорта столицы страны Хартума рано утром в понедельник. На борту находились четыре члена экипажа. Все они погибли.
"Погибший гражданин России - Массальский Николай Петрович", - сказал дипломат.
Кроме того, по словам Аржанцева, среди погибших - гражданин Белоруссии Анатолий Курочкин, гражданин Казахстана Валерий Подольский и гражданин Узбекистана, командир корабля Вячеслав Уткин.
"Причины катастрофы пока не названы, однако самолет не был перегружен", - сказал дипломат.
По его словам, разбившийся Ил-76 выполнял рейс по доставке груза на юг страны.
"Я был на месте катастрофы, это нечто ужасное. Самолет упал в достаточно населенном, элитном районе близ Хартума, и это чудо, что из числа местного населения никто не погиб", - сказал он.
Я думаю, что экипаж сделал многое для того, чтобы избежать большого числа жертв, чтобы дотянуть самолет до пустыря, где он упал", - добавил Аржанцев.
Государственное радио Судана сообщило, что перед самым падением Ил-76 зацепил опору линии электропередачи. По данным властей, самолет задел ЛЭП уже во время падения. Очевидцы рассказывают, что лайнер горел, еще находясь в воздухе.
Президент Судана Омар Хасан Ахмед Аль-Башир в понедельник уволил главу Управления гражданской авиации страны Абу Бакара Гаафара и запретил полеты гражданских грузовых самолетов российского производства. В постановлении президента ничего не говорится о российских лайнерах, используемых вооруженных силами Судана.
Аль-Башир также распорядился сформировать комиссию, которая займется выяснением причин недавних катастроф.
Крушение Ил-76 стало второй авиакатастрофой в Судане за неделю и третьей за прошедший месяц.
|Cargo plane crashes in Sudan,
killing 4 crew
30.06.2008 //05:00 GMT
A Russian-made cargo plane crashed near the Khartoum airport on Monday shortly after takeoff from the Sudanese capital, killing all four crew members.
It was the second plane crash in Sudan in a week and the third this month.
The plane hit an electricity pole shortly after takeoff and then crashed into an empty field, bursting into flames, said Sudan's state Omdurman radio.
The Ilyushin 76 plane (reg. ST-WTB) was headed for the south Sudanese capital of Juba, and the cause of the crash and nature of its cargo were not immediately clear, said Abdel Hafez Abdel Rahim, a spokesman for the country's civil aviation authority. It hit the electricity pole as it was already crashing, he said.
The plane's blackened tail landed just a few yards from a group of apartment buildings. The plane was already on fire as it plunged down.
"There was smoke at its tail. It crashed and then blew up about 10 minutes later," an eyewitness said.
Twisted metal, tires and pots and pans from the cargo were scattered over a construction site for a new residential compound. Security forces cordoned off the crash site and major streets leading to the area. Residents said electricity went off for about an hour.
Sudan, Africa's largest country, has a poor aviation safety record and many small airlines that crisscross its sprawling terrain. Three years ago, the government said it planned to build a new airport in Khartoum by 2010 but that remains in the planning phase.
Russia's Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying one of the victims was Russian, and Russian radio stations reported the other crew were from Belarus, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. U.N.-operated Miraya Radio said the plane belonged to a private Sudanese company, Ababeel Aviation.
Later Monday, Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir fired the chief of the country's Civil Aviation Authority, Gen. Abu Bakar Gaafar, and banned Russian-made cargo planes from operating in Sudan's civil aviation, the state SUNA news agency said. It made no mention of the use of the Russian-made planes by Sudan's military.
On Saturday, seven people were killed and one survived when a Russian-made Antonov plane operated by Juba Cargo crashed in southern Sudan. Earlier in June, an Airbus A310 caught fire after touching down at Khartoum's airport, killing 30 people on board. Another 178 escaped.
|Товарен самолет катастрофира
отново в Судан, 4 загинали
30.06.2008 //05:00 по Гринуич
Товарен самолет Ил-76 с бордови номер ST-WTB и принадлежащ на суданската авикомпания Ababeel Aviation е катастрофирал малко след излитането си от летището в Хартум, Судан. Имал е за дестинация Джуба, Судан и според експертите не е бил претоварен. Според очевидци от опашната му част излизал дим, след което катастрофирал до блоковете на столичен квартал. При снижението се натъкнал на елетропреносни жици и помел електрически стълб. Други щети и жертви на земята няма. Четиримата от екипажа ( руснак, белорусин, казахстанец и узбекистанец - командир на самолета) са загинали при катастрофата.
Президентът на Судан Омар Хасан Ахмед Ал-Башир уволнил в понеделник началника на Управление - гражданска авиация за страната Абу Бакара Гаафар и забранил полетите на гражданските товарни самолети руско производство. Води се разследване за изясняване причините довели до трагедията.
Настоящата тежка авиокатастрофа се явява трета в рамките на месец за страната.
