OMG.........A "DANA AIR".........JET JUST CRASHED INTO/OUT(?) OF LAGOS NIGERIA............JUST HEARD IT!!!!!!!!".............Runway Series".......I thought I had seen it all............






The PPRN...."The Professional Pilots Rumor Network"...........has started a 'Thread'...........while not always accurate......gives details, usually from pilots themselves.......!!!!!.click on "Rumors and News""...I've got a real BAD feeling about this!!!!!!!!!!!!.....that area of the world is notorious for crashes and such!!!!!!!!!!......


The flight,9J-996, originating from Abuja, was approaching the Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos, with less than four minutes to landing.  

2 Crashes in 24 hours!!!!!!!!!!. some details from the 'Freighter crash on web-link below!!!!


Not just the second in 24h, it's the second for Nigeria - the Ghanaian accident also involved a Nigerian operator.

An Allied Air Cargo Boeing 727-200 freighter on behalf of DHL Aviation Africa, registration 5N-BJN performing flight DHV-3 from Lagos (Nigeria) to Accra (Ghana) with 4 crew, was on approach to Kotoka International Airport but overran runway 21 upon landing and came to rest near the El Wak Sports Stadium at the Hajj village at about 19:10L (19:10Z) basically in one piece. The 4 crew were taken to a local hospital but remained unhurt. 12 people on the ground, 11 occupants of a Benz 207 Bus and a soldier riding a bike along the road, have been killed, a number of injured were taken to a hospital. The aircraft received substantial damage beyond repair, all gear collapsed, the right wing was damaged due to impact with the bus, the tail plane separated from the aircraft and the tail fractured including fractures of the pressure vessel.
