Overland Suffers Smoke
On Feb 8, 2013, an Overland Airways ATR-72 flight OJ1175 from Abuja to Ibadan, Nigeria, suffered engine issues with smoke pouring from one engine. Passengers saw the smoke which started a panic, and they evacuated through the emergency exit.
There were no injuries reported.
The passengers remained in Abuja awaiting a replacement plane.
The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) is investigating.
This picture displays why the passengers were panicked. Words alone don’t do it justice, do they?
