13-Jan-21 (serial tba) Mil Mi-24 Wad Zayed, Sudan

Crashed shortly after taking off from an airport.  All on board survived

(Mi-24 is best guess at type.  3POB and an “attack helicopter” seem reasonably likely to be correct.  “Apache” clearly is not.  However, image issued by the Sudan News Agency shows the aft end of the tail boom and stinger of an AW109 – but (like the Apache) there are no known aircraft of this type in this country.  A Mil-8 is also possible
