By George Hatcher

On January 27, 2013, a Med View flight was en route from Lagos to Abuja when it developed sudden problems in one engine. Passengers panicked when they heard a boom at 12:30, and the plane began to fly unsteadily.

73 passengers were aboard the twelve o’clock flight that had started fifteen minutes late at Murtala Muhammed Airport.

Pilots shut down the affected engine and made a safe return to Lagos with emergency services on standby.

Apparently pilot and crew made no announcements, but they did handle the emergency and get the plane down safely.

Passengers were provided an alternative flight to Abuja on a 737.
