A bizarre simultaneous landing resulted in a fiery collision between two military aircraft in Sudan.

The collision between two Sudanese transport aircraft — an Antonov 30 and an Antonov 32 — at Khartoum Airport (KRT) was caught on CCTV and posted online by Airlive.

According to the United Arab Emirates-based Khaleej Times, a fire broke out after the two collided, and firefighters were dispatched to battle the blaze. As of this time, no casualties have been reported.

Unconfirmed photos posted on Twitter show both of the aircraft badly damaged.

As of 12pm ET, the airport remains closed.
