It seems Nigerian pilots are not yet conversant with our NOTAM as far  as Porthatcout  and aircraft accident/incident are concerned. There is this phenomenon known as Aqua Plane which is frequent at that Airport, luckily enough, it is the Incidents rather than the Accidenst that we have experienced so far. Aqua Plane is a phenomenon in Aviation whereby an aircraft landing during rain loses all breaking power, as a result of the tyres losing grips with the tarmac because of a thin layer of water causing interference.
