AIB Report To Address Controversy Over Max Air ‘serious Incident’ by zakim(m): 8:59am On Sep 11
Last Saturday’s hard landing of a Max Air plane conveying 560 pilgrims from Saudi Arabia at Minna International Airport has generated controversy over the cause of the incident. However, the Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB) which classified the hard landing as “a serious incident” has cautioned against speculating on the cause as its investigators have commenced investigation to find out the immediate and remote causes of the incident which caused panic at the airport.

Many media reports suggested the aircraft with registration No. 5N-DBK which took off from the King Abdul-Aziz International Airport, Jeddah, crash-landed at the airport though all the passengers and 19 crew members were safely evacuated. But the chairman of the airline, Dahiru Mangal, in a statement signed by the Director of Flights Operations, Capt. Ibrahim Dili, refuted the claim that the plane crash-landed.

The bone of contention which is generating interest in the sector is the statement by Max Air claiming the incident was caused by weather and lack of runway light known as Instrument Landing System (ILS). Stakeholders query the claim of the airline which they say amounted to pre-empting the outcome of the investigation, as it is only the AIB, which had done its due diligence by dispatching investigators to the scene immediately it was notified, that has the power to speak on the cause of the incident. “Our aircraft never developed any engine problems, rather the weather at the airport and the lack of runway light forced us to safe land,” Max Air said.

But the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) punctured the claim by Max Air that the Instrument Landing System (ILS) at the Minna International Airport was not functional. Spokesman of NAMA, Khalid Emele, explained that the ILS at Minna airport remained serviceable contrary to the claim by Max Air. NAMA faulted the statement by Max Air that the ILS at the airport was “epileptic with unreliable signals.”

It said, “While we acknowledge that we have absolute confidence in the ability of the Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB) to conduct a thorough investigation (which is ongoing), we are constrained to however put things in proper perspective for the benefit of our airspace users and the flying public. “The reported weather on the day in question was 10km visibility in nil weather. “Secondly, the said Instrument Landing System was successfully calibrated early this year (2019) and there has been no report of non-alignment by the equipment from pilots since then.

Other operators that have used the facility after the incident have not complained about the ILS malfunctioning.” But all eyes are on the preliminary report of AIB which would clear the air on the actual cause of the incident. AIB said: “From the information provided, the aircraft on landing scraped the runway while the number one engine brushed the runway surface and no injury was recorded.”

It reiterated that its team of investigators has already commenced investigation and solicited assistance from members of the public for any information or evidence that could aid the work. The bureau also advised against speculating on the cause of the incident.

Using Nigerian Airline on international route?

It's a no for me

My Kenyan friend that we are here together said he didn't consider flying KQ from Nairobi to Auckland.

He used Emirates as we did from Lagos.

It's obvious the man isn't saying the truth.

For it to ha e crash landed, it may be pilot error or failure of the landing gear to deploy properly

Pilot error, pure and simple.

The PIC should have abandoned the landing due to faulty instrumentation and bad weather, then proceeded to the alternate landing site.

Oh!

Please why have we chosen LIE as our official language in Nigeria?

The man that made the denial earlier might not have made even a simple phone call to confirm, his job is to deny any news that sounds negative. So sad.

My first time on a MAX air flight was on a trip to Lagos from Abuja few months ago. I was jejely complaining about the air hostess who ain't as beautiful as the air hostesses on the other airlines I was used to. Then the pilot's very bad landing made me decide that would be my last flight with them.

I wanna believe this landing was the pilot's error especially if it is the same pilot that flew the plane I was in
