It is the second loss of an HS 748 turboprop in South Sudan this year. In February one crashed at Rubkona airport in South Sudan killing one crew member and injuring the other three. 
Both were carrying aid relief cargoes.
Friday’s crash involved a A Kenyan-registered aircraft manufactured in 1981. It was on charter for the Lutheran World Foundation to deliver relief goods loaded in Juba, South Sudan’s capital city.
A formal air accident investigation has already been instituted by the Kenya civil aviation in collaboration with the South Sudanese authorities.

The co-pilot was my best friend Abubakar mohamed omar, a 25 years old with Kenyan nationality, who joined the airline within that year 2014. He was 2013 graduate from Nairobi University with a Degree in Actuarial science prior to becoming a pilot. He personally called me during that night informing me that he will be coming to Nairobi on Friday night but learnt the sad news of his death at around 11am on Friday 14 November 2014. Rest in peace bro. we will remember you forever.
