The plane's right wing hit a vehicle and a fire started on the right side of the plane, Ateny said. The plane crashed while I was approaching the airport because I was expecting my friend, who has a letter from Juba to deliver to me. The flight was arriving from the capital of Juba, according to BBC. "But when it touched the ground, it immediately burst into a huge flame".
Forty-four passengers were on board the plane belonging to South Supreme Airlines, officials at the carrier told journalists.
Charles said the weather in the region had not been good when the plane came into land.
