According to the Kampala Metropolitan Police deputy spokesperson ASP Luke Owoyesigire, on Friday at approximately 7:14 AM, a Bar aviation aircraft with flight registration No. 5X-RBR was en route from Kajjansi to Kisoro, via Mbarara and Kihihi, carrying a total of 14 passengers.

We have been told that the aircraft was operated by two pilots who were preparing to transport the passengers backnto the Entebbe International Airport.

Police told uncovered reporters onna phone call that “Unfortunately, shortly after takeoff from Kajjansi Airfield at approximately 12:19 PM, the aircraft experienced difficulties and attempted to return for landing and tragically crashed at Kajjansi Airfield, in close proximity to MAF Hangars,”.

Some people where the aircraft crashed told us that” The aircraft was too old and it needed maintenance otherwise it would have crashed in January. So we encourage the management to always use good aircraft for transportation, “.

“Emergency services were contacted, and an ambulance from Memorial Hospital was dispatched to transport the injured individuals to Memorial Hospital Lubowa for further medical attention” Owoyesigire added.

A team from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA)  arrived at the scene to inspect the aircraft, and an additional group from the Ministry of Works and Transport,  also arrived to assess the situation.
