Accident: Trans Avia Export Cargo IL76 at Juba and Entebbe on Aug 22nd 2017, destroys two houses during go around in Juba, gear collapse in Entebbe

By Simon Hradecky, created Thursday, Aug 24th 2017 08:43Z, last updated Thursday, Aug 24th 2017 11:19Z

A Trans Avia Export Cargo Airlines Ilyushin IL-76 on behalf of WFP (World Food Programme by United Nations), registration EW-78799 performing freight flight UNO-49H from Juba to Juba (South Sudan) with a load of food, had air dropped the food in Jiech (South Sudan), about 210nm north of Juba, approx. coordinates N8.37 E31.13, and was on approach back to Juba in poor weather conditions at about 10:30L (07:30Z). When the aircraft broke through the clouds the crew initiated a go around however the aircraft impacted a tree and house completely destroying the house, the jetblast off the engines damaged another house. The aircraft climbed out to safety and diverted to Entebbe (Uganda), located about 290nm south of Juba, where the crew performed an emergency landing. The main gear collapsed during landing in Entebbe as result of the damage received in Juba. On the ground in Juba a 5 year old girl was killed, 4 other people injured in two damaged houses. The crew escaped without injuries, the aircraft sustained substantial damage.

WFP South Sudan reported a 5 year old girl was killed in one of the destroyed houses as result of the go around, 4 more people (a boy, a girl and two women) received injuries. The UN WFP extended their condolences to the affected. The accident happened as result of thunderstorms and heavy rain which impaired visibility on approach to Juba. The aircraft diverted to Entebbe where the aircraft suffered the collapse of the main gear due to metal sheets embedded in the landing gear following the impact in Juba.

A ground observer reported the aircraft was not aligned with the runway center line when it descended through the clouds in about southeasterly landing direction (runway 13) but apparently aiming directly at the "Hotel Rainbow" about 2320 meters/7600 feet southwest and abeam of the runway center line, initiated a go around but struck and destroyed a house and subsequently climbed away.

I think that is the first time I have heard of a accident where the plane didn't actually crash but killed people on the go-around. Mind you, with the incredibly long list of aviation incidents, I'm sure it has happened somewhere else at some point.

Be interesting to see the investigation details, if one ever gets done. Minimums on RWY 13, Juba, are ~300' on the rnav (only approach available last ime I was there), so the crew likely busted minimums - not that I would be surprised. UN likely won't do much, other than send the crew packing.

The aircraft diverted to Entebbe where the aircraft suffered the collapse of the main gear due to metal sheets embedded in the landing gear following the impact in Juba.

Reminds me of the IL-76 that brought a bunch of fence with it from Trenton to Ottawa after missing the approach from....a very low altitude.
