Private Jet Crashes At Lagos Airport



An aircraft belonging to Jedidiah Air on Friday crashed into a fence at General Aviation Terminal (GAT), local wing of the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos.

It was gathered that the jet, a propeller aircraft, crashed into the fence when it was reparking at the tarmac close to a facility used by Bristow Helicopters.

An eyewitness disclosed that the accident occured due to brake failure.

“The accident happened around 10:00am at a tarmac beside Bristow Helicopter Hanger 3. The jet had no passenger on board with the pilot suffering no injury.

“The brake of the jet was not functioning which led to the collision of the jet with the fence of Bristow Helicopter hanger,” the eyewitness told The Nation.

Naija News understands that the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) officials visited the scene of the accident.

The aircraft, a King Air 200 jet with registration number 5N-HIS, is being operated by Mobil Oil Nigeria-Wings Aviation.
