Passengers Escape Death As Aircraft Develops Fault Mid-Air [Nigeria]

Aero-1 Passengers Escape Death As Aircraft Develops Fault Mid-Air [Nigeria]No fewer than 120 passengers including the Director, Muslim Rights Concern, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, on Friday evening escaped death as an Aero Contractors Airline Flight 180 from Lagos to Kaduna developed technical fault mid-air.

The aircraft which was said to have suddenly lost altitude, 20 minutes after it departed the domestic wing of the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos, wobbled in the air for over one hour before it was eventually diverted to Abuja.

According to Akintola, who broke the news to New Mail, he said, “The plane lost altitude 20 minutes after takeoff. We had to make use of the oxygen masks. We saw smoke outside the plane, probably coming from the engine compartment. At this time, the whole plane was thrown into commotion. Many passengers screamed and some fainted. Prayers upon prayers were offered. Some shouted Allah, others Jesus.

“While the pilot was making the announcement of the flight diversion, I noticed that his voice was trembling. He told us that Abuja was 120 miles away and that we would land in 25 minutes. But we were not sure we would make it.In fact, I qu!ckly recited the Kalimah (the Quranic invocation of the oneness of Allah), believing that the end had come.” A statement by the airline stated, “Aero confirms that there was depressurisation in the aircraft cabin leading to the dropping of oxygen mask. And since Aero has a maintenance facility in Abuja, the flight to Kaduna was diverted to Abuja this evening to fix the problem.”
