Lol @ Chanchangi flyin molues.

But on a lighter note. Why does plane crash make so much newz in Nigeria?

10X the number of plane crash victims die on our roadsdeath traps every yr. Yet it hardly make the newz. The Prezident sheddin hiz crocodile tearz at the site of the plane crash iz the height of hypocrisy that I've ever witnessed in this country. While hiz subjects diez like houzefly on our roadz that are worse than that of war-torn countries.

Methinks that plane crash makez the headline because it affects mostly the top 1% of Nigerianz. Vast majority of Nigerianz can't afford to fly.

That's idiocy at it's highest. Same issue with ageing out good vehicles from being imported.

An aircraft is a piece of machinery, and it can last for a very long time as long as it's properly serviced and not overstressed, meaning being used withing it's desigend parameters.

The Dana air crash was a bomb waiting to explode (search the web for it's previous issues with Alaska Airlines).

What the government needs to do is set up a real (not jeko jeko) airline safety board. Pay the members/staff well so they don't resort to bribes, etc and hold them accountable to safety standards.

Don't let us throw out the bath water with the baby in it.

PS: Dana Air Chairman should do the honorary thing that Japanese people do, have him swallow a sword.

PPS: There should be daily train departured from Lagos to Abuja on a world class train service. We as a nation, looking at the decrepit state of infrastructure are not ready to take flight just yet. The common theme amongst savvy foreigners, including me, is to never fly internally in Nigeria.

National Assembly members are busy drinking tea and coffee & looking for a way legalize prostitution instead of making laws that would make Nigeria a better country. My Dad escaped ADC in i think 1996, my mum swore to never enter local airlines again after her ordeal with Nigeria Airways, that should be 1998 or there about. One of my uncles died in bellview in short I'm tired. Arik is not too bad but when the weather is bad, na kasala o. Omo ABC and Ekeson and Young shall grow go get customers very well. Infact i'll buy a 5k ticket night bus to lagos. Afterall since dem don clear police checkpointts, there are no more armed robbers on the highway again wink

Airlines should run brand new aircraft, this is human lives we are talking about. If they don't have enough money for brand new, then let FG invest in them so they can be able to buy brand new aircraft, spread repayment over a period of time. This is gross, that we even have aircraft that has lived for more than 40 years still flying our airspace and we say we have a minister of aviation, and a director general??

I fear, fear.

What will be d way forward...... Let's burry the Gaint of Africa status, if it's only one airline that has airworthy craft by international avaition standards in Nigeria, let us come clean and allow only that airline to operate while we make efforts to attract other investors to patronize the sector. No point exposing the good people of Nigeria to unparalleled air hazards. Safety is too crucial to be compromised...

That's my honest take.

i beg to differ!

if a plane has being in use for 20 years,then that plane has really worked.even if the plane is 20 years old and rarely flying,i think you still need good maintenance.but yet still,for how long do you expect a plane to be used?until it crashes?

it is like in nigeria companies do not ground their planes,until the planes get too tired to fly and kill people.very sad reality!!!

so please do not try to cover up on age.it is not like new planes do not crash.but there is higher risk of older planes after reaching a certain age to crash.

IGNORAMUS!!! Its very impossible to manipulate the age of an aircraft! The line number/serial no is known worldwide and can be tracked by anyone!

And what I want y'all to know is that the age of an aircraft is insignificant if the scheduled and routine maintenance are performed as at when due. The diff btw new and old aircraft is just the cost of maintenace basically!

If the quality dept of the airline thru NCAA ensure and enforce safety trust me we have nothing to worry about.

Beam light should be on the Aircraft maintenace dept n Quality dept of all airlines as well as NCAA themselves.
