Jubba Airways Broke on Landing, No injuries

What: Jubba Airways Antonov AN-24 en route from Hargeisa to Galkayo
Where: Galkayo
When: Apr 28th 2012
Who: 32 passengers and 4 crew
Why: On landing, both right main gear tires blew. The right wing separated from the rest of the plane. The plane apparently came to a stop off the runway— but we haven’t seen any photos.

We have to disagree with the Minister of Aviation Mr. Gamute stating that it was the pilot who could not land the plane. He also spoke derogatorily of the old, uninspected Russian-made planes. But his top quote was this:
“There is always irresponsibility of the planes done by the local agencies. They do not meet the requirements of Automotive Electronics Council (AEC) for domestic flights.”

For crying out loud, he’s the Minister of Aviation! Isn’t HE supposed to do something about this?

No one was hurt. We’ve seen accidents a lot worse than that.

*Note: Due to circumstances beyond our control, normal photographs were not available so our staff three year old drew us his interpretation of an AN-24 in crayon.
