Nigerian Air Force Plane Crash Lands At Benin Airport

Travellers at the Benin Airport panicked on Thursday when an air force plane crash-landed on the runway.

Sources confirmed that none of the two pilots onboard the aircraft, with registration number 5N-BKS, were injured in the incident.

“The plane landed on the runway with its tyres locked in, an indication that the tyres did not shoot out,” said a source at the airport. “But only the pilot can really explain what happened.”

An airport rescue team led Air Maritime Operations responded promptly with the emergency team.

The incident caused delays in flight operations for some hours.

The airport manager, Segun Ayodele, who confirmed the incident, however said he was not at the airport when it occurred.
