Pilots Were Arguing Before Agagu's Plane Crashed - Blackbox by LMAyedun(m): 4:56pm On Oct 11, 2013
There appeared to be an argument between the Captain and the First Officer of the Associated Airline aircraft which crashed on 3 October in Lagos Nigeria and killed 15 people, the aircraft’s black box has revealed.

The readout of the black box ,also known as Cockpit Voice Recorder, CVR, conducted by Nigeria’s Accident Investigation Bureau, AIB, in its Abuja’s laboratory revealed that the computer onboard the plane sent a warning message to the Captain, Yakubu Abdulrahman, shortly before take-off but he ignored it.

The First Officer then suggested to the pilot to abort take-off but Yakubu Abdulrahman proceeded and took off.


“The First Officer asked if the take-off should be aborted approximately 12 seconds after the ‘eight knots’ callout,” said Captain Mukhtar Usman, Commissioner Accident Investigation Bureau,AIB.

AIB said the pilot and the co-pilot discussed some concerns about the aircraft prior to departure.

“The crew discussed some concerns about the aircraft prior to departure but at this time we are not prepared to elaborate on those concerns as there remains a lot of work to do to complete on the CVR analysis in order to determine the specific nature of the crew’s concerns,” said AIB Commissioner, Muktar Usman.

Usman said approximately four seconds after engine power was advanced to commence the take-off roll, the crew received an automated warning from the onboard computer voice which consisted of three chimes followed by “take-off flaps…take-off flaps.
“This is a configuration warning that suggests that the flaps were not in correct position for take-off. And there is some evidence that the crew may have chosen not to use the flap for take-off,” Usman said.

“This warning continued throughout the take-off roll,” Usman added.

“Approximately three seconds after ‘power is set’ call, the First Officer noted that the aircraft was moving slowly.

“At this time we can state that the Right engine appeared to be producing considerably less thrust than the left engine. The left engine appeared to be working normally,” Usman said.

Was this pilot on a self suicide pact? How can someone ignore such a warning, knowing that there are no pit-stops in the air?

I have always wondered if the planes don't give signs of technical problem and this goes to show that indeed there are signs but people just choose to ignore those signs.

The captain must have been a man who trusted in his experience/ability.
We need the guidance of God in our lives and may we hear the voice of the Spirit when He cautions us.

They accuse Stella Oduah of only beautifying our airports and I ask under whose tenure was this laboratory set up?

Before this black box would have been holed up in one laboratory in US or Europe and we would probably be waiting for the result


The First Officer then suggested to the pilot to abort take-off but Yakubu Abdulrahman proceeded and took off.

Oga pilot you see what non adherence to rules can cause

the pilot should have been psychologically and cognitively examined before his take-off really

I blame the crash on the careless Aviation sector & the 'over-Sabi' Pilot.
R I P to the lost ones.

Guess stella odua was right after all
Yakubu abdulraman, that says it all.

You guys are misunderstanding stella odua. What she meant was that, the plane crash wasn't due to an error by her ministry or the agency i.e everything was in right order, just the way it is in successful flights.

In Nigeria, even the blackbox recording can be doctored for political gains. Don't let them put the wool over your eyes. No sane pilot will risk his own life by ignoring such a warning and take off anyway, unless he is a kamakaze pilot. Nonesense!!

It was not an Act of God neither was it due to the age of the aircraft .
Even 20 yrs aircraft is still very safe .
This was mere negligence.
I believe the pilot wanted to avoid the blame of why didn't u check the plane before we came
