Yesterday Morning would have been another black Sunday in the history of Nigerian aviation as a plane crash was averted.
Dana Air flight 356 from Abuja to Lagos which landed miraculously at 7:30pm at MM2 airport Lagos after its right engine was lost mid air 30 minutes to Lagos. Luckily for the passengers the solo engine was able to manage a safe landing unlike the IJU Dana Plane which lost both engines and crashed.
To avoid the wrath of vigilant passengers who obviously saw the loss of the right turbine at the back of the plane, passengers were told to disembark from the rear of the cabin preventing contact with the cockpit to avoid further embarrassment for their callous concern over human lives.
A passenger on the flight said that the fasten seat belt sign was on for almost the whole duration of the flight with refusal to passengers to ease themselves. The ascent was laborious and the altitude was way below normal. The right engine was making a grunting noise and then about 25 minutes into the flight it stopped completely.
The engine turbine was static and only the left engine turbine was used to fly and land the plane in Lagos. Thank God it did not fail like the ill fated Dana crash were the pilot lost the second engine after deliberately flying with only one engine from Abuja.
Why did the government give back licence to the airline ??? to endanger more lives or what ?
God help us o ,
