NCAA, AIB launch probe as Overland plane bursts into flame

An aircraft – ATR 42 -belonging to Overland Airways unexpectedly caught fire yesterday where it was parked at the airline’s hangar at the domestic wing of the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Ikeja.

The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) and Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB) immediately launched investigations into the fire.

Spokesman of the AIB, Tunji Oketumbi, who confirmed the development, said a team of investigators from the bureau went to the site of the incident and carried out the necessary duties.

The AIB official said there was no intention of flight as regards the aircraft, which he said was seriously affected by fire.

He said the AIB could only operate within the limits of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Annex 13 covering air accident investigation.
