A major air disaster was averted on Friday as an Aviation Airline flight with Ibadan as its destination had a near blow up as one of the the engines caught fire just before take off. The passengers had to run and jump out of the aircraft.

One of the passengers told Street Journal that “thick flame was up and the air hostess shouted that we should all come out. The door wouldn’t open on time until the captain assisted.”

The passengers first had to sit down on the grass but were later conveyed from the tarmac in a bus. In the course of the confusion, Rtd Gen Jinadu was pushed down and he fell flat. Street Journal also found out that the flight could have taken off but for a passenger who caused a delay by insisting on sighting her luggage.

Officials of Overland Air could not be reached for comments as of the time of filing the report.

Some of the passengers had to be taken to the airforce base for first aid.  continue reading latest news
