Wow, absolutely incredible. The largest country on the continent, the most endowed in terms of natural resources and human resources and yet this can happen in the 21st century; I hope they do a thorough investigation and plug all holes as this is a ticking time bomb.

You ever wonder while most of Nigerian airlines were banned from flying to Europe and America?

Safety, Safety, Safety.

With all the petro dollar money they earn they can not operate one damn airport effeciently.
how sad.

They need to clean up their act quickly for their own sake or else that black gold wouldn’t last for ever.

First when i see the news i was shacked once when i start reading it happens in Nigeria Airport it didn’t surprise me because Nigerian Aviation is one of the worlds deadliest Airline I’m not laying for the last 5 years 3 Airplanes came down from air and killed many people so it is not amazing at all . God Bless Africa & the Aviation of Nigeria.

Americans and Europeans are obsessed with efficiency, they always have a contingency plan for every mishap. This speaks to many facets of Africa’s institutions. Hope much lesson can be learned for all the countries in Africa not just Lagos.

Ethiopians should think about thier travel to Naigeria before they buy air tickets here after. I think Naigerian Air line is the poorest in its standard in Africa. Be subtle “HABESHA” before u lost your life.

God forbid such incidence for that Airline, I can imagine what the attendants was feeling at that time as I am flying freqentlly. Nothing much one can do if such a disaster happens at all except allowing death in all its pain and sadness!!

Thank God for saving all the lives would have been lost

:?:Johnny visitor : buddy you are just a daft idiot with your daft comments…….. “Nigerian aviation is one of the worlds deadliest airlines"? Did the article talk about a Nigerian airline?is there an airline called nigerian aviation? Can you even find Nigeria or Ethiopia on a map? ….my friend pls Stop…. “laying":crazy:LOL

And the rest of you xenophopic posters who love to bash Nigeria at every chance you get, even though you have never been there, and probably have never met one, but love to hate hate hate no matter what.

How many Ethiopians do you think were on board probably only the crew, as the aircraft was not on the usual middle Eastern maid service or the “DV winners/soon to be criminals in the USA” shuttle to DC, meaning no Ethiopians.

For the record Aircraft don’t hover in mid air! Cessna Skyhawk back me up on this, and all aircraft must have alternative airports to divert to in case of eventualities, so they could have and should have diverted to Abuja or their designated alternative airport.

Even if Radar fails, it did not say the radios failed so air trafic controrl can instruct airfraft to Hold in a safe traffic pattern at different altitudes, so the bullshit that they were hovering at the same flight level is just that…. Bull shit!

Aircraft NEVER Hold at the same flight level! no Pilot will accept to hold in a holding pattern on the same flight level with another aircraft. It is against basic flying regulations

Even student Pilots will not accept such stupid and dangerous instructions from ATC

Get it right. The white man is watching lol

Most of this (Nigerians) people know only how to dance, show off, etc…. and they forget the “Word” called Managment which is important in every sector of professional institution.
I am glad that the African PRIDE Ethiopian Airlines and other Airliners who have also been hovering for hours made it safe.

Ethiopian airlines should avoid Nigeria airports ASAP.
Thanks GOD this time all went OK. This is a wake up call.

Black boy,
In the process of defending the pathetic Nigerian civil aviation system, you insulted the rest of Ethiopian passengers as either maids or DV winner soon to be criminals.

Now let’s see who is the real xenophobic.

So if you think they are good on what they do, why let airlines hover for hours to the point that fuels on some airlines reached a dangerous level and in the process jeoperdize the life of mostly Nigerian passengers? Why not divert to alternative airport? Where is the backup plan?
