A Fokker 50 suffered a runway excursion at Mogadishu Aden Adde International Airport in Somalia. It collided with a concrete perimeter wall.
The aircraft operated on a cargo flight to Beledweyne. After takeoff the flight crew elected to turn back to Mogadishu Airport due to an issue with the hydraulics. During an attempted landing on runway 05, the aircraft veered off and impacted the perimeter wall. Both pilots sustained serious injuries as a result.

In a statement, the Somali Ministry of Transport reported that the aircraft was operated by Silverstone Air Services of Kenya.
This airline stopped all scheduled services in November 2019, after the airline was forced to ground their DHC-8 aircraft by authorities.
