June 10, 2008 (KHARTOUM) — A Sudan Airways plane crashed this evening at Khartoum Airport. The Airbus was carrying 203 passengers and the 14 crewmen.

The Airbus veered off the runway as it landed in the airport, and then burst into flames. The airplane’s fuel caused the explosion of the crashed plane.

Around 103 passengers were killed following the incident. However, there are conflicting reports about the exact figure of the causalities.

The crashed plane had already tried to land at Khartoum Airport but due to the rains it had landed at Port Sudan and then resumed its flight to Khartoum.

The Airbus was coming from Damascus, Syria and Amman, Jordan.

    Oh my God.This is really sad news to hear of plane crashed and killed such a number of people.Who’s to be blame,the pilot or those who control the Tower?.I think the pilot was imformed about bad wheather condition in Khartoum and he divert the plane and landed in Port sudan. My question here is: Who asked the pilot to take OFF from Port Sudan and land in Khartoum before standard water on the runway get drain?? I think if proper whether proceedures were taken seriously all these could have been prevented. May God rest the souls of those perished in this incident in peace and quick recovery for the wounded.

    we are not convince about the cause of this incident. Since the plane came from the terror land of thier Dad, Osama.
    You sudanese presidents are the cause of all those plane death. Becuase you are selling oil for firearms instead of replacing all those outdated planes.

    Hope that Omar el Bashir was in that plane so that he feel and taste death. He has been murdering many Sudanese and he is always alive. there are many air, bus and rails crushes in Sudan due to old planes being use for transportation because the country can not afford to buy new and efficient planes because Omar el Bashir is using public money to fund his genocides and wars cross the greatest large country in Africa which is suppose to be the pride of Africa. But due to Bashir murdering policy, Sudan is a death valley. If an innocent Sudanese escape death from the bullet, he would be assured that the next death awaiting him is either air, road or rail accident due to poor transportation system. But God is great one day Bashir will soon meet his death and Sudanese will be free. It is sad that the evil ones dont die but the Good ones are the ones who always perish, what a shame!!!Bashir is worse than Saddaam Hussein because of his crimes he has committed against his own brothers across the great land of Sudan.A rich nation in resources like Sudan should by this time be giving countries like UK, France and even the US a competition in all aspect of the Economy, but one man has been an obstacle and refused to grant the great Sudanese people that previledge of enjoying their resources and decided that instead of letting them enjoy their good life in their country he is going to turn them against each other so that he is the only one to benefit from his own sponsored wars and genocides. If God hears prayers and if Allah hears prayers, Omar el Bashir will meet something else to deal with him. The pain beared by the young ones is unbearable and the pain beared by helpless old ones is also unbearable. I hope soon Omar will be gone and the public funds will be use in improving transportation, development and and schools and health etc.
