Chaos At Lagos Airport As Two Airplanes Collide


Two airplanes reportedly collided on Wednesday at the Muritala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos, thereby causing lots of chaos.
An Airbus A330-243 owned by Middle East Airlines with registration number OD-MEA ran into a Boeing 777 airplane with registration number TC-LJC operated by Turkish Airlines.

Sources at the airport said the Turkish cargo flight was parked at the international airport apron when the Middle East airbus ran into it.

“The Turkish cargo flight was parked at the tarmac when the MEA airbus ran into it l, ripping off part of the empennage of the aircraft.

“The MEA flight was taxiing when it happened,” the source said.

The MEA Airbus, which had been boarding passengers since 12:00pm, had to get off every passenger on board. Another source at the scene of the incident said the Middle East Airline and others had been carrying out commercial operations under the disguise of evacuation flights.

“These people have been running commercial flights under the disguise of evacuation. They come to this country at least three times a week.

“The MEA and even
Turkish Airlines and others have been carrying out commercial operations,” the source added.

Meanwhile, efforts are ongoing to ascertain what transpired and the level of the accident.
