As reported by Airlive, Khartoum Airport in Sudan is closed today after two Sudanese Airforce Antonov aircraft landed on the runway at the same time shortly after 10AM this morning. Here’s video footage of the incident:

While it looks like the planes are damaged beyond repair, there are no reports of casualties as of now, which is good news, at least. One has to wonder how on earth this could happen, since this is an airport with a tower. You’d also think one of the planes would have initiated a go around in a situation like this.

Hopefully everyone is okay, and I’l be curious to see what the investigation reveals.
