Air Mishap Averted On Ilorin-lagos Route by israel007: 9:07am On Dec 20, 2012
Smarting from the helicopter crash that claimed the lives of former Governor of Kaduna State, Patrick Yakowa, former National Security Adviser, General Andrew Azazi, and four others last Saturday in Bayelsa State, the nation would have witnessed yet another disaster but for providence, as an Overland Airways flight from Ilorin to Lagos suffered technical problems on take-off.

A source told Vanguard that the flight, OJ 1188, had difficulties stabilising in the air as the landing gear failed to retract after take-off from Ilorin Airport, Sunday.

The pilot was said to have continued the journey to Lagos, with the flight witnessing turbulence as the landing gear failed to retract.

A passenger on the flight said the aircraft wobbled its way into Murtala Muhammad Airport with its landing gear hanging dangerously throughout the flight.

Vanguard could not confirm the incident from the operator of the airline, Capt. Edward Boyo, last night as calls put through his mobile number remained unanswered.


However, Director-General of Nigerian Civil Authority, NCAA, Dr. Harold Demuren, who confirmed the development, said the aircraft on take-off at Ilorin Airport, hit an object which made it impossible for the landing gear to retract after take-off.

He said the pilot was, however, able to manipulate the aircraft to land safely in Lagos, without injuries to the passengers

OK

That pilot made a monumental error in judgement by continuing the flight to his destination with stuck landing gear.

Normal procedure would have been to circle round after takeoff, and land immediately on the same runway, after spending just a couple of minutes airborne.

Overland has only two planes - one is 25 years old, the other 19. For a long time it was d only airline serving lagos-ilorin-abuja route, until Arik's tuesdays, thurs and saturdays flights were introduced. If i hav a choice I will never travel on their molue plane again- noisy, hot and scary.Arik planes are I believe new.

Re: Air Mishap Averted On Ilorin-lagos Route by Dankudi: 2:48pm On Dec 20, 2012
I am not an aviation expert, but common sense tells me the sensible thing to do was abort the journey and attempt to land the aircraft at Ilorin airport instead of flying to Lagos.

Local flights are now a No-No for me.

Re: Air Mishap Averted On Ilorin-lagos Route by horlajide: 2:53pm On Dec 20, 2012

Apparently, the pilot was ordered to continue the journey to Lagos, perhapsto avoid refunding the passengers air fare.

I flew with overland recently and the plane was really noisy. I was wondering which kind of airplane was this. I recovered from the noise after several days. Overland should please check there plans.
