What: Dana Air McDonnell Douglas MD-83 en route from Abuja to Lagos, Nigeria Where: Iju neighborhood, Lagos When: June 3, 2012 Who: 153 passengers Why: Weather was clear. The Dana Air flight experienced engine trouble first in one engine, then the other and was nearing to the airport when it apparently struck a cable and crashed into a residential area less than four miles from the airport. There are no survivors.
Pilots already flying on one engine had slowed, then the second engine failed.
The number of people aboard is not definite as it is not reflected in the flight manifest. Apparently some paper-ticketed passengers are not recorded on computer records, and the passenger manifest is in the process of being double-checked.
The plane had refueled which contributed to a massive fire. The number of casualties in the furniture store/workshop and apartment building that were struck is unknown.
The Nigerian Red Cross, Nigeria’s air crash safety investigators,2 firetrucks and 50 rescue personnel arrived on the scene. A number of charred remains have been recovered.
Local residents report hearing a loud explosion that sounded like a bomb.
Photos of the disaster site show people wandering around the wreckage, with the site not secured.
