Nigerian Airforce Deploys Air Assets To Support Operation Python Dance II.Photos by Angelanest: 9:44pm On Sep 19, 2017
In line with its commitment to national peace and security, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has deployed some of its air assets, including the Alpha Jet aircraft, to its 115 Special Operations Group in Port Harcourt, to support the ongoing Nigerian Army’s Exercise EGWU EKE II (PYTHON DANCE II). The essence of the deployment is to provide the necessary air cover to the ground troops to enhance overall operational cohesion and efficiency.

It would be recalled the operation began officially on 15 September 2017 and was planned to cover the entire South East Region of the country. The wide expanse of the exercise area and the request by the Nigerian Army for close air support made the involvement of the NAF inevitable.

Exercise EGWU EKE II is aimed at combatting security challenges in the Southeastern part of the country. The deployment of the air assets in support of the Nigerian Army is thus in fulfillment of one of the constitutional mandates of the NAF.

Revealed: Details Of How Nigeria Airforce Alpha Jet Was Shot Down And Captain Captured By Boko Haram

After the release of the latest video of the Boko haram sect, where the sect leader did not only denounce the claim by the Nigeria military that he has been killed, but also said it shot down the Nigeria Airforce Alpha Jet (NAF 466), more information has continued to emerged on the ill-fated Alpha jet.


Though the video also showed scenes of the wreckage of the Alpha jet and one of pilots beheaded, the Nigerian military denounce the content of the video, saying its plane was not shot down and that the man beheaded in the video is not its pilot.



However, someone in the know of what transpired has released last minute details how the jet crashed and how pilot maneuvered it to kill Boko Haram fighters knowing fully well that it was going to crash eventually.
Below is how the source, My Aye Dee (@MrAyeDee) puts it.


I just found out what I believe is the actual story of NAF 466 , the Alpha Jet that was shot down by Boko Haram.


A company of Nigerian soldiers was attempting to overrun a Boko Haram position in Borno, it seemed they radioed in for help and NAF 466 assisted with a strafing run.


Due to the low altitude, the plane suffered major damage from ground fire, once the pilots realized a crash was imminent, instead of being concerned for their own safety and parachuting within territory controlled by Nigeria, the brave pilots decided to make their final mission a suicide run and aimed the Alpha Jet at a mass of BH fighters who were assembled about a km (or so) away behind enemy lines.


In their final act of heroism, they waited till the last second before parachuting out, knowing that even if they made it out alive they would be captured and killed by enemy forces, but their sacrifice for Nigeria would ensure numerous Boko Haram fighters would also die in the process.


They were right on both counts. The plane slammed into a camp of hardened enemy fighters (not frontline conscripts), killing about 63 of them.


One of the pilots of that flight, Wing Commander Chimda Hedima is the one whose execution BH gleefully filmed. I know that with such courageous and selfless individuals in the Nigerian Armed Forces, #VictoryForNigeria is certain!?
