In Lagos airport: Plane Loses Tyre While Landing

A near-mishap was recorded today at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos when an Air Peace flight lost one of its tyres while landing.

The aircraft, with 133 passengers and six crew members on board was on approach to Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos from Port Harcourt.

AIB, however, confirmed the incident to Channels Television noting that the aircraft involved was a Boeing 737-300 with the registration marks 5N-BQO and operated by Air Peace Limited.

“From the information provided, the aircraft nose wheel collapsed on landing on the runway (18R) and the nose wheel gear tire sheared off.

“The AIB was informed of a minor injury but no fatality.

“Our team of safety investigators have commenced investigations,” the statement signed by the Commissioner of AIB, Akin Olateru read in part.

AIB also called for support from members of the public with any video clip, relevant evidence, or information that can aid their investigation.
