Travel / A Survivor Of The Colombia Plane; Adopting The Brace Position Saved My Life by JesChill(m): 11:27am On Dec 02
On many occasions that I've taken trips by air, well in my type of work it is mainly helicopters or choppers as we call them, we usually have few minutes for a safety talk where passengers are briefed on safety measures and what to do in the case of an emergency. They always emphasize the "brace position", but what I have noticed over time during these briefings are passengers nonchalant attitude towards this exercise, to some of them its just a ritual the airlines have to perform, so they are hardly interested, well here is a true testimony from one of the survivors of the Columbia plane crash involving a Brazilian football team on Quartz Weekly.


On the night of Nov. 28 a charter plane hurled into a mountainside-south of Medellin, Colombia’s second-largest city. Of the 77 people aboard, all but six died. One of the survivors, flight technician Erwin Tumiri, believes that following normal airline safety protocols saved his life.
While many passengers stood up from their seats and screamed, he told local media, he tucked a bag between his legs and “went into the fetal position as recommended in crashes.” The so-called “brace position” is recommended by many airlines, but many have questioned its effectiveness. Tumiri said he was certain he survived because he “followed the safety protocols.”
No doubt luck played a role in his survival as well. It’s clear from the smashed wreckage that many passengers would have perished no matter what measures they took.
The plane was carrying the Brazilian soccer club Chapecoense, a small-market team that had beat the odds to reach the Copa Sudamericana, a major club competition. The team was on its way to play in the first leg of the final.
Besides Tumiri, the other survivors included three players, another crew member, and one journalist.
The plane’s pilot told air traffic controllers he had run out of fuel, after skipping a scheduled refueling stop in Bogota

Travel / Chapecoense Air Crash: Pilot 'was Warned Over Fuel' by gentle136(m): 10:40am On Dec 02
The pilot of a charter plane that crashed in
Colombia on Monday had been warned before
taking off from an airport in Bolivia that he
might not have enough fuel, a report says. An airport official raised the concern after checking
the plane's flight plan, Bolivia's Deber newspaper said. Seventy-one people died in the crash, including
members of a Brazilian football team. Six people
survived. Bodies of the victims are due to be repatriated to
Brazil. Colombian authorities have said evidence is growing
that the British-made BAE 146 Avro RJ85 aircraft ran
out of fuel as it tried to land at Medellin airport. Experts
say it was flying at, or very near, its maximum range. In a leaked tape, the pilot, Miguel Quiroga, can be
heard warning of a "total electric failure" and "lack of
fuel".

Travel / Terror Attacks Loom At Nation’s Airports Over Porous Security-the Guardian by HungerBAD: 5:43am On Dec 02
By Wole Oyebade

Experts seek review of aviation safety programmes

Security experts in the aviation industry yesterday warned that terror attacks were imminent at airports around the country.The experts, after a close look at happenings in and around the aerodromes, said that the news of another stowaway on Arik Air aircraft suggested that attacks might just be closer than the authorities were aware of.

The concerned stakeholders, who spoke at the breakfast meeting of the Aviation Safety Round Table (ASRT), a think-tank group of the sector, urged an immediate review of the aviation security programmes at the airports and operating airlines, if the country must prevent a possible attack.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has said it is doing its best to ensure that security standards are duly implemented at the airports.

The lifeless body of a stowaway was on Wednesday found in the main wheel well of one of the Arik Air’s A330-200 aircraft at the Oliver Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg.

An aviation security consultant, Group Captain John Ojikutu (rtd), observed that it was the second time Arik was being targeted within three days, after some armed robbers told police in Port Harcourt, Rivers State that they were headed for an Arik plane when they were apprehended in a shootout.

He hinted of a recent incident where a domestic airline passenger plane could not land because some herdsmen, allegedly with sophisticated ammunition, were grazing their cattle around the runway.

Ojikutu said that the incidents showed that terrorists, including Boko Haram insurgents, Fulani herdsmen and Nigeria Delta militants were becoming aware of how porous the nation’s airports were, and fast exploring the openings.

According to him, most of the airports have no perimeter fences and others that are fenced (like the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos) already have private homes using the fence as a part of their buildings. He said both situations constituted a security risk to any airport around the world.

Ojikutu also noted what he described as the challenge of insiders’ threat, where airlines are owing salaries and security operatives can still not tell which of the agencies is in charge of coordinating security.

“For all of these issues, I will hold the NCAA responsible. When the case of stowaway happened in Benin, I asked them ‘how did it happen without an insider’s connivance?’ The perimeter fences are porous. The MMIA has one that is not security-enhanced. That is why we have all these cases of stowaways.

“What I expect NCAA to immediately do is to review all the security programmes of these airports, and of Arik in particular. We are talking of the lives of Nigerians here being put at risk and government of Nigeria has a responsibility to protect them,” Ojikutu said.

Apparently in agreement with Ojikutu, cybercrime security expert, Ifeanyi Ugochukwu, said the threat of terrorism was no longer in doubt, “it is only a matter of when it will happen.”

Ugochukwu said that while the security operatives were focused on physical threats, cyber threats were already “upon us with drones already in private hands in the country.”

He said: “Cyber security threat is real. It is not about if it will, but when it will happen. Our environment encourages insiders’ threat because we employ people we don’t have their background checks to work in our airports. The Nigerian state, regulators, operators and the passengers all have work to do, but must first be aware of the precarious situation we are in.

According to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) attachee, United States’ Embassy, West Africa, Gary Pleus, aviation is a common target of terrorist groups around the world .
Pleus said since the 911 attack in the United States, adversaries had advanced to the use of underwear bomb vest, explosives hidden inside toothpaste tubes, rocket small arms, shoe bomb and departure hall attacks, all to beat security and wreak havoc.

While he gave kudos to the Nigerian security operatives for departure hall security, he said that insiders’ threat, stowaways, disgruntled workers and so on were all still threats that must be dealt with.

Travel / How Stowaway Was Found Dead On Arik Air Plane by Truth234: 2:08am On Dec 01
The lifeless body of a stowaway was on Wednesday found in the main wheel well of one of Arik Air’s A330-200 aircraft at the Oliver Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg.

A statement by its Communications Manager, Mr. Ola Adebanji, said that the aircraft operated the scheduled Lagos-Johannesburg flight that departed the Murtala Muhammed International Airport at 3:55pm on Tuesday and arrived in Johannesburg shortly before 11pm.

It said engineers of South African Airways Technical facility at the Oliver Tambo International Airport, where the aircraft was scheduled for a routine maintenance check, discovered the body of the stowaway during the inspection phase.

The airline said investigations were ongoing to determine how the stowaway found his way into the aircraft’s main wheel well.

Travel / Dead Stowaway Discovered On Nigerian Plane In South Africa by amzee(m): 5:44pm On Nov 30
A dead body was found on Wednesday
in the wheel well of a Nigerian plane after it
landed in South Africa, the airline said in a statement.

The body was found on a plane operated by
Arik Air, one of Nigeria's
largest airlines, that
had departed
from the country's
commercial hub of Lagos and landed at
Johannesburg's OR Tambo International
Airport Tuesday
evening.
"The lifeless body of a
stowaway was on
Wednesday, November
30, 2016 found in the
main wheel well of one
of Arik Air's A330-200
aircraft, Arik Air spokesman Adebanji Ola said in a statement.


South African
engineers discovered
the body of the
stowaway during
inspection, the
statement said.
"Investigations
are ongoing to
determine how the
stowaway found his
way into the
aircraft's main wheel
well."

In the past five years there have been
reports of dead
Nigerian stowaways
found in planes
travelling from Lagos
to Johannesburg
and New York who
have frozen to death or
have been crushed by a
wheel.

Dire economic
conditions force
Nigerians to embark on
risky trips in search of
better lives abroad, with many attempting
the dangerous Mediterranean
crossing to Europe.

Nigerians have also
been among the
hundreds of illegal
migrants intercepted
off the Red Sea coast of oil-rich Saudi Arabia this year.

Travel / Dead Stowaway Found On Arik Air Plane In Johannesburg by Keneking: 4:35pm On Nov 30
Yet another deceased stowaway was discovered on an Arik Air flight at the Oliver Tambo Airport in Johannesburg, South Africa on Wednesday.


The unidentified stowaway was found dead inside the wheel well of the Airbus A330-200 aircraft.

The flight had departed the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) in Lagos on Tuesday at 3:55 pm and arrived in Johannesburg at 11 pm that night.

A statement by the spokesperson of Arik Air, Mr. Ola Adebanji, disclosed that the engineers of the South African Airways Technical facility at the Oliver Tambo International Airport discovered the body of the stowaway during the inspection phase of a routine maintenance check on Tuesday.

He said that investigations were ongoing to determine how the stowaway found his way into the aircraft’s main wheel well from the Lagos airport.

A source close to MMIA told our correspondent that it is not uncommon to find stowaways on planes departing from the airport, as some desperate Nigerians connive with security operatives at the airport to get access to restricted areas of the facility.

The source said that the stowaway may have gained entrance into the airport through the Shasha area of the airport at night and hid himself in the wheel well of the aircraft, hoping to travel successfully to any overseas country.

Just recently, a stowaway was found on a Med-View Airline aircraft destined for Accra, Ghana.

The stowaway, a man in his 20s, had successfully hid himself in the tire compartment of the aircraft, which was ready for taxiing from the international wing of the airport, before he was spotted by the pilot who was carrying out a final inspection of the aircraft before departure.

The pilot immediately raised the alarm and called the attention of the security officials at the airport who immediately swung into action, arrested the man and handed him to the police station at the domestic airport.

The suspect allegedly confessed that he had been hiding around the airport for two weeks trying to achieve his goal of travelling out of the country by all means.

He confessed during investigation that he attempted to stowaway out of desperation to leave the country for another one in search of greener pastures.

In a related case, a suspected stowaway was found dead in the belly of an Arik Air aircraft at the same airport. The deceased stowaway was discovered during the routine inspection of the United States bound aircraft.

Before then, there were no fewer than four stowaway incidents recorded on Arik Air jets.

It would be recalled that in October 2012, a stowaway entered the undercarriage of an Arik Air aircraft to New York from MMIA with the alleged aide of some security personnel and ground handling companies at the airport.

The unidentified stowaway later died and was discovered when the aircraft returned to Nigeria from New York by its personnel conducting routine checks in Lagos. Local medicine and a Bible were found on him.

Again, on the same airline on August 24, 2013 at Benin Airport, a 13-year-old stowaway, identified as Daniel Oikhena, hid under the undercarriage of the aircraft from Benin to Lagos.

Information gathered revealed that the boy thought the plane was on its way to the United States, but unfortunately for him, the aircraft landed in Lagos and he was immediately apprehended at the airside of the airport by security personnel.

In 2013 alone, no fewer than five stowaway incidents were recorded in the nation’s airports.

Hehehehehe. lol. Canada is cool. Loving it here so far. It can only get better by God's Grace.

lol winter in Europe is nothing compared to winter in Canada grin grin It can get really cold here trust me.

Except Maybe in a place like Vancouver. And even at that it's still cold there.

The good thing is that, the only place it gets cold is mostly outside. And most of the time you may not have any reason to stay outside for long. Most places have good heating systems that you'd be sweating inside some Banks/Grocery stores.

At times when the weather is around -5 to -11. (Real feel could be more) I still use my Fall Jacket. Cos some of those winter jackets can be a bit weighty and you may end up holding it for a long time if you're in bank or a grocery store for example.

But not to scare you, you'll survive. smiley I believe most Nigerians will prefer Winter to Summer.

But a place like Yukon is a different game o. I've heard stories about that Territory. It's extremely cold. They dont experience Summer like we do. And I learnt government even pays people to go there. grin (Living there is expensive, as plane is the most used transport system for food stuffs and all)

During the winter, we walk like Penguins so we don't slip on ice. grin grin There's no forming here about falling on the ice. Cos lots of people fall. Infact they advice one not to fight it, once you realize you're about to fall, just fall jejely. grin The hurt will be lighter compared to dragging it.

Seeing people fall is Funny, but it sure hurts. I hope I don't get to fall one day. cry

There are nice people here. Met so many of them. Including Nigerians. You'll like it here. smiley

Travel / My Flight Experience To Abuja by Shobby94: 10:33pm On Nov 29
This is going to be an interesting story. I have an important business to attend to in Abuja on the 29th of this month. On a normal day I always fly with Arik Airline because of the customer service and smooth flight even though they delay sometimes, but one cannot overlook the flight that you can rely on Arik Airine to deliver. But unfortunately, there was no flight to Abuja from Ibadan today. So I decided to go with overland Airways (worst mistake).
The flight was to depart by 2.30pm and they were right on time. I was thinking to myself that this is nice (Good Job Overland Airways) not knowing that am yet to see anything.
I got into the plane and I saw that the plane was small (hahhahhaha). It was stuffy, the Air conditioner was not working and we were all sweating like Christmas goat when it is not yet Christmas time (Can you imagine?). I asked one of the flight attendants why the Air conditioner was not working and all she could say was don’t worry when the plane moves it will start blowing (with a straight face ooo). To add to the situation, the captain then informed us that we will not be able to move for 5 minutes due to unforeseen circumstances.
Guys, five minutes turned to 30 minutes, and don’t forget that I told you earlier on that the air conditioners was not working. So we were in the stuffy plane for thirty minutes fanning ourselves with their booklets. The captain later told us that we can leave the plane and go to the waiting room. As we were leaving, all the flight attendants could say was ‘THANK YOU’ (Thank you? Are u for real?).
Anyways, the problem was solved and we were asked to get back on the plane. But guys, the Air conditioners were not functioning well despite the fact that the flight attendant lied to us that as soon as the plane leaves it will start functioning well. On top of that I could hear the engine noise and it was not a smooth journey. But Kudos to the captain for landing well.
All I want to say is, no offence to Overland Airways but you have a long way to go. The Airline has been around for fourteen years (FOURTEEN YEARS) and will be celebrating their fifteenth anniversary in August 2017 (yes overland I read the magazine). My advice is to get better employees, good maintenance and larger air planes.
Have you guys had any similar experience with any of the airlines? Drop yours in the comment section.
THANKS FOR READING!!!

Thanks all for the advice on travelex earlier. Now this is how the experience went:
My friend went to hustle for dollar on the 15th in order to travel with Virgin Atlantic on the 16th Nov by 11am. People travelling on 15th were disappointed by travelex as they haven't really started selling when their plane started boarding. He explained to the staff on duty who advised him to try and get on 15th using online boarding pass. Meanwhile he got to the airport around 6.30am and was already around number 60 on the list. They mixed up line and all, gave tallies, changed to queues, etc. Eventually he got dollar around 7pm at rate of N385. Though travelex collected online boarding pass for the processing but this is said to be based on discretion of the officer selling. He was given his dollar at the boarding gate on the 16th Nov. Mehn dollar hustle is real o. cheesy grin

Traveled on 6th Nov. Flight was for 11am; I got to Travelex at 3.15am. Number was 6. Still didn't get before traveling

The first division Chapecoense football team was among the 72 passengers and nine crew on board the plane when it crashed around 10:15pm (local time) on Monday after reporting electrical issues.

There were reports of at least six survivors being found before rescue operations were suspended due to heavy rain in the crash site, in a mountainous area near the international airport in the city of Medellin.

"Tonight it was reported that a plane coming from Viru Viru airport in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, which should have landed at Jose Maria Cordova, airport had gone off course," a Colombian rescue official, Mauricio Parodi, earlier told reporters.

Authorities and rescuers were immediately activated but poor weather conditions made the crash site only accessible only by road.

"It's a tragedy of huge proportions," Medellin's Mayor Federico Gutierrez Gutierrez told Blu Radio on his way to the site.

The South American soccer federation cancelled all activities until further notice as a result of the crash.

The CONMEBOL federation said in a statement that its president, Alejandro Dominguez, was on his way to Medellin.

The Chapecoense team had been due to face Atletico Nacional of Medellin in the first leg of Wednesday's Sudamericana final, South America's equivalent of the Europa League.

It was the first time the small club from Chapeco had ever reached the final of a major South American club competition but they were underdogs against a club going for a rare double after winning the Copa Libertadores in July.

In a statement on its Facebook page, Chapecoense said "may God accompany our athletes, officials, journalists and other guests traveling with our delegation".

The team said it would refrain from any further statements until it had fully evaluated the extent of the crash.

It was the first time the small club from Chapeco had ever reached the final of a major South American club competition but they were underdogs against a club going for a rare double after winning the Copa Libertadores in July.

In a statement on its Facebook page, Chapecoense said "may God accompany our athletes, officials, journalists and other guests traveling with our delegation".

The team said it would refrain from any further statements until it had fully evaluated the extent of the crash.
