An Antonov 2 biplane was destroyed when it crashed shortly after takeoff from Arua Airport (RUA), Uganda. The airplane was flying officers of the Uganda Peoples Defence Force (UPDF) to Nzara airfield in South Sudan.
Witnesses say the plane failed to gain altitude after takeoff. It hit a tree and crash-landed on two huts in Ayivuni Sub-county, 8 km from Arua Airport before bursting into flames.
The airplane was reportedly owned by a company and was chartered by the UPDF.
