An Aero flight NG127 flying from the domestic wing of Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos to Abuja with over 141 passengers on-board, yesterday, suffered a burst tyre just as the plane was lifting off after “attaining V2”. At this velocity, aborting the take-off may have led to immediate crash of the plane, but for the pilot who did the right thing by controlling the plane into the air and bringing it back for emergency landing.

Reacting to the incident, the spokesman of the airline, Mr. Sam Tumba, said: “Aero flight NG127 from Lagos to Abuja on this day made an air return as a result of a burst tyre, which occurred just as the airplane was lifting off. The pilot did the right thing by not trying to abort the take-off. He controlled the airplane into the air and following all trained procedures, he brought the plane back to a safe landing. At no time, during all of these, were the passengers’ lives at any risk.” The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA)said the authority is already investigating the incident.
