Windshear in the Frame Following the Jubba Fokker 50 Landing Accident: According to the findings of the investigation, wind shear was a contributing factor in the landing disaster that occurred earlier this year in Somalia and involved a Jubba Airways Fokker 50 turboprop. On July 18, the aircraft with the registration 5Y-JXN had been operating as part of a domestic service traveling from Baidoa to Mogadishu.
According to the Dutch Safety Board, which has volunteered its assistance to the investigation that is being directed by Somali authorities, the aircraft encountered wind shear at a low altitude while it was making its final approach to runway 05. According to the report, the pilots “lost control of the aircraft” after encountering the wind shear, and as a result, the Fokker “struck the runway hard.”

The vehicle rolled over and came to a stop in an inverted position, inflicting significant damage in the process. During the chain of events that led to the disaster, the left wing fell off, and a fire started. According to the information provided in the third-quarter bulletin by the safety board, three of the thirty passengers sustained minor injuries. In addition to the passengers, the aircraft, which was 30 years old, had a crew of six.
The meteorological data from the Mogadishu airport for the time of the accident reveals winds of 18 knots from the south-southwest, which suggests a tailwind component for runway 05, but other than that, favorable conditions existed.
