An Antonov An26’s propeller detaches mid-flight while flying in South Sudan

A propeller detached from an Antonov An-26 and landed near a highway in South Sudan yesterday.

The An-26 managed a safe landing at Juba International Airport moments after the propeller detached and local construction workers were seen taking pictures of the propeller.

The Civil Aviation Authority of South Sudan has since banned all An-26 aircraft until further notice excluding the An-26 involved with United Nations carrying out humanitarian flights.
