Ukrainian investigators have been downloading the flight recorder information from a Let L-410 which crashed in South Sudan in September.

The aircraft (UR-TWO) had been operated by “Slav Air”, according to the Ukrainian investigation authority NBAAI.

Flight Fleets Analyzer lists the operator as South West Aviation, the last of several carriers to use the turboprop since it was originally delivered to Aeroflot in 1984.

NBAAI says it appointed a representative to participate in the probe into the 9 September accident, during which the aircraft crashed into a lake near Yirol airport.

The L-410 had been operating to Yirol from the South Sudanese capital Juba. NBAAI says flight-data recordings were downloaded at its facilities from the end of October to early November.

Twenty fatalities resulted from the crash, with another three people suffering injuries. The South Sudanese aviation authorities are heading the inquiry.
