1025: i said it the other time and nobody believed me. fani kayode told us that cultists were responsible for the air mis-harps in nigeria before because they were blood thirsty.
my mind is telling me that these guys are back. pdp is a cult and they must need blood every day. let us watch out for this issue. we must stop pdp or face these things again.
even if 10 plane crashes happen, the blood gotten will not be more than that from road accidents in 6 months. Quit the ignorant rant pls.

Kobojunkie: Are there any Indians/Chinese/Pakistanis/Moroccans etc working there? let's create a thread to bash these set of foreigners too since we have a bunchh of Nigerians here who are not just mindless tribalists(haters of those from other ethnic groups within Nigerians) but Xenophobes and racists, and believe bashing foreigners is same as defending Nigeria
do you think nigeria is capable of doing anything good

Too much ignorance here.

Even US fighter planes miss the arrester cables on the aircraft carriers at sea, which is why they apply full thottle on landing so that if they miss the cable, they will have enough momentum to take off and make another landing attempt.

Kudos to the Aero pilots that made a great call and brought the situation under control. I am aware that Aero sends their pilots to France for compulsory SIM training and recertification every 6 months. I don't know of other airlines.

temmytanny: I DONT think shoul be carried away by this story. Was it engine,mechanical fault that caused the mishap or heavy rain storm. If its rain storm,it can happen to any airline any where in the world,because of poor visibility of the run way by the cabin crew.I am not trying to support AERO but we should be careful about propaganda stories now. If not for DANA,no body would have heard the story of AIRNIGERIA flying dead planes. Funny enough the story came from someone who has worked for them since they started operations. why didnt he complain why he was working for them? NOw that he is sacked and wanted for stealing,he remembers that they are flying dead planes.
Even the airlines with best most recent aircraft had issues while i flew it somedays ago. We had to wait for an hour in another country for it to be fixed before we could embark on our journey.

IF YOU ARE A FREQUENT TRAVELER ,YOUR LIFE IS IN THE HANDS OF GOD AND NOT THE MEN FLYING THOSE PLANES EVEN THE DRIVERS ON OUR ROADS. ALL WEE NEED IS PRAYERS AND SAFE JOURNEY.

Hey, u spoke my thots. U re on point my dear.

This is the time for us to patronise God is Good Motors, Agofure, The Young, Ekene Dili Chukwu, Chisco Motors, Ohomba Line, Iyare Line, Edegbe Line and host of others. Atleast the risks are minima.

when poor people die of road accident, na normal, then when rich people die and continue dying of air accident na normal also. let them fix the road otherwise they will continue to die of air accident. Amin!

I agree with kobojunkie. the aviation problem in Nigeria is not just about Dana or the Infians working there. It's more about the aviation system flawed with so many inefficiencies.

RICHIE BOI: Passengers on an Aero Contractor flight to Uyo in Akwa Ibom state had a flight scare earlier today as the air jet missed the runway in an attempt to land at the Uyo airport.

The flight ran into a terrible rainstorm according to aviation officials.

The Chief Pilot of Aero safely landed the plane after a second try. All passengers disembarked without incident and the airliner has returned to Lagos.

Once an airline working the profitable oil and gas industry routes, Aero Contractors fell deeply into debt but is reportedly making a comeback after settling with Oceanic Bank over the N30bn unpaid funds.

... This is the most ridiculous thread I've ever seen on NL. It's a lie, senseless & ... I was there at the airport, The airline did not miss the runway, it was raining and the run way was a bit floaded, the aero contractor chief-pilot abort the landing and landed at the nearby calabar airport which the control tower can be viewed from the uyo control tower. After the rain he came back and landed safely. "Fake sahara reporters" mschew

I quite agree with everything you said but the part in bold; did you miss the part of the original story that said he RESIGNED?
Re: Aero Contractor Plane Misses Runway At Uyo Airport by DaBeaver(m): 2:43pm On Jun 08, 2012
soft-touch:
It seems many don't know what it means by " missing runway" during a bad weather. At any landing, visibility to runway MUST NOT be less than 300 meter, that is the standard for all plane during landing. If the visibility is less, the Plane will be forced to try another approach for landing, which is known as missing the initial run way. This happen a lot during both foggy hamattan, snow and raining season.
I just wonder why press is making stories from a normal procedure.
Are you saying plane should crash land during bad weather?

@Johnwell: Mr. JOHN, please do WELL to enlighten yourself by reading the quoted post above. The fact that you were physically there apparently doesn't make you any better informed than others.
