A couple of days ago two military planes collided while landing at Khartoum Airport in Sudan. The footage looked pretty awful, though fortunately there were apparently no fatalities.
The airport was shut down for several hours following the incident. At first we just saw a very limited angle of the planes colliding, which raised a lot of questions of what happened in the moments before that.
Now there’s footage of both of the planes landing, and this raises even more questions:

What the heck is going on with that second plane?
Initially the theory was that the military planes were trying to do a formation landing, but if so, this looks like it was badly botched from the very beginning. Was the second plane incapable of doing a go around, or…?
