VIDEO: Mix up as plane crash-lands at Abuja airport

The plane was reportedly conveying passengers from Adamawa State to the federal capital territory.

A Max Air aircraft on Sunday crash-landed at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja.

The plane was reportedly conveying passengers from Adamawa State to the federal capital territory.

The Max Air aircraft crash-landed after the tyre reportedly burst into flames, sending a wave of panic across the Abuja airport on Sunday.

The Aerodrome Rescue and Fire-fighting Service operators at the airport were swiftly deployed to the scene to put off the fire.

Former President of the Nigeria Medical Association, Dr Mike Ogirima, who narrated what happened, said that the tyre burst occurred after takeoff at Yola Airport.

However, the aircraft crash-landed in Abuja with emergency officials already on the ground to put off the fire before the passengers disembarked right at the runway.

Ogirima said, “We thank God. We are still on the runway and the pilot has reassured us. He has called for the stairs and we are now disembarking from the runway to be evacuated to the airport building at the arrival hall”

He said the tyre broke free from its compartment before they left Yola, sending the passengers into panic mode as they spent the rest of the journey praying for a safe landing in Abuja.

“We bless God because we have witnessed the pull out of the tyre right from the airport in Yola and we went into a prayer session.

“I never announced it as a surgeon so as not to cause any panic but we bless God,” Daily Trust quoted him as saying.
