Location: Tira Mande, South Kordofan, Sudan
From the report: An aircraft consistent with an Antonov An-26 'Curl' is seen flying north over Tira Mande, which is 6.5 km/ 1mi north of of Angarto. The apparent Antonov An-26 was traveling at approximately 320 miles per hour, striking the second site approximately 11 seconds after striking the first. The Antonov An-26 is approximately 250 km/ 156 mi away from the El Obeid airstrip, 90 km/ 56 mi away from the Kadugli airstrip, and 30 km/ 19 mi away from the Talodi airstrip; each of these airstrips is under Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) control. SAF routinely uses Antonov aircraft to indiscriminately bombard civilian populations in South Kordofan, Darfur, and Blue Nile State.
