A major tragedy was averted on Tuesday evening, April 18, 2017 when something went wrong on an Aero Flight from Port Harcourt to Lagos to the extent that the cabin was filled with smoke mid-air.
Popular Nigerian blogger, Linda Ikeji, shared the news with an eye-witness video. According to her report, one of the passengers on the flight recorded the inside of the aircraft as this incident was under way.
In the YouTube video, you can hear lots of prayer and calling on the name of Jesus Christ by anxious passengers and you can see the smoke in the cabin. Some passengers are also seen sitting calmly on their seats.
“The cabin of an Aero Flight from Port Harcourt to Lagos this evening, April 18th, was filled with smoke just 20mins before they landed in Lagos,” Ikeji reports.
“Passengers said they could see the wings spark and fire alarms were even going off.
“There were fire trucks all over when the plane touched down but thankfully they landed safely and there was no incident.”
There has been no official statement from the airline or the airport authorities at the time of filing this report.
