Qatar Airline Makes Emergency Landing in Lagos

Qatar Airline flight 592 from Doha to Lagos made an emergency landing a few minutes ago at the Murtala Muhammed International airport, Lagos. The pilots discovered midair that one tyre had low pressure, making landing difficult. They radioed our airport for emergency precaution and a vehicle to tow the plane from the runway to the gate.

The best part was, more than 95% of the passengers didn't even know anything was wrong until the plane landed and they saw fire service and National  Emergency Management Agency all around. One of the passengers tweeted that it was a smooth landing so was surprised that they even had issues.

The plane has been slowly towed to it's landing spot at the airport. We thank God

That is what comes with using new state of the art aircrafts. We are still debating whether 20 year aircrafts are ok for our air space or not.

BOBBY said...

What do you mean by naija pilots please learn? The Dana air crash, was the pilot a Nigerian? How many crashes in Nigeria could you recount a Nigerian pilot was involved in? Please get your facts correct before passing some unneccessary comments. The pilot did what the procedure says and it worked...we thank God. It is not always like that all the time...xxxxx

May Gods name be highly magnified! God has done it again! Am most greatfull to him

You guys really talk any how. managing problem is what safety is all abt and no pilot wants to die. pilots follow the book. some time it works some time it fails.

Why would they even not know that the tyre is bad before taking off.

Secondly, if he landed and the tyre busted, same you would say that he would have told the passengers.

We speculate a lot in Nigeria. we need to have faith in our pilots cos they are the best. they look for them all over the world.

In Nigeria,the pilot are already aware that the plane they are flying is not in good condition so thers's no need for them to form one emergency landing,it must be forced to it's destination even if it costs them the whole lives on the plane.

My dear people let us just give all the thanks to God for averting what would have been another disaster. This was the same Quatar airway my husband flew early dis yr n had problems mid-air. D pilot was able to gain control of the plane later. Some passengers out of fright stood up n hit their head against each oda n were injured. My husband being a doctor also assisted d medical team in treating some injured people. A mail was sent to my husband some days later thanking him for his help n also apologising 4 d inconveniences. If u luv ur life u better avoid Quatar airways cos i see disaster looming around dem. Dat definitely means dey ve nt properly repaired dat aircraft. A word is enough for d wise.

SMH young man, there's a big difference btwn managing and solving a problem okay? #okbye
