October 2009: ACCDT: An AZZA Transport (AZT) 707-330C freighter (JT3D-7) (788-20123, /69 P4-AKW) on wet-lease to Sudan Airways (SUD) operating a cargo service (SD 2241) between Sharjah and Khartoum, crashed shortly after taking off from Sharjah, killing all six Flight Crew (FC) members aboard. The flight was scheduled to land in Khartoum. The airplane was destroyed, according to the Flight Safety Foundation's Aviation Safety Network. According to reports, the Flight Crew (FC) declared an emergency immediately after lift off, reporting the failure of the right outboard engine. The airplane subsequently veered sharply to the right and impacted the ground. Am airport surveillance video released after the crash shows the airplane climb out normally, but after it disappears from view, a large part is seen to fall from the sky. The airplane then comes back into view banking steeply to the right and losing height. It impacted the ground about five seconds later.
On October 25th, the (UAE) Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) identified the part that fell from the airplane as the cowling of an engine. It added that the cowling separated 20 seconds after lift off and the airplane started to roll to the right immediately thereafter and impacted the ground 1.1 nm/2.1 km from the end of the runway. The Cockpit Voice and Flight Data Recorders (CVR/(CFDR)s were recovered and were sent to0 the United Kingdom for analysis.
AZZA Transport (AZT) was banned from flying in the (UAE) until the end of the investigation.
