Last night, someone contacted me about an incident at our Lagos airport concerning an Emirates flight but I didn’t fully understand what he wrote because his words were not clear. Then this morning, I received this photo from another eye-witness. This happened on the eastern taxi way at Murtala Muhammed airport Lagos. I don’t know exactly the full gist (will find out and come back to you) but there was definitely an incident at the airport last night. The wing of an Emirates plane tore through a Hak-Air parked plane during take-off. I think international flights were landing and taking off at our domestic airport and that caused an accident last night..but no injuries recorded. See the email I got last night after the cut and see if you can make sense of what the guy was trying to say…
Dear Linda, due to some parking space and afro bridge step at international airport…. international flight touching ground at domestic and taking off…..
