Narrative:
An Antonov An-32 collided with an Antonov An-26 on runway 18 at Khartoum Airport (KRT), Sudan. Both aircraft were operated by the Sudanese Air Force.
CCTV video footage from the accident show the An-26 going down runway 18, being caught up by the An-32 from behind. The left hand wing and propeller impacted the rear of the An-26. The nose section of the An-32 appears to have been broken away in the accident sequence and the tail section of the An-26 also suffered serious damage.
The collision occurred on runway 18, as the aircraft were passing taxiway C, some 1900 meters past the threshold of the 2980 m long runway.
Runway 18/36 was subsequently closed.

Photos from the scene show the An-26's serial starting with '770'. The Sudan Air Force fleet list at russianplanes.net shows 7706 to be the only active An-26 fitting that serial part.
