Descripción:
The aircraft was on a flight from Lokichoggio Airport in Kenya to Bunagok in South Sudan. Approximately 1.5 hours into the flight, the engine started leaking oil which spilled onto the windscreen of the aircraft, impairing the pilots’ vision. There was smoke in the cockpit and the pilot declared an emergency. The pilot broadcast their position and then prepared for an emergency landing. The aircraft made a successful emergency landing in an open field nearby. After ascertaining that there would be no fire, the pilot radioed his company from the aircraft and help was sent to evacuate them. They were airlifted by helicopter at about 09:40 hrs. A strip investigation in an overhaul shop did not reveal any significant failure to the engine.
