Passengers panic as Medview Airline plane develops fault midair

Medview Airline

A Medview Airline flight from Lagos to Abuja was suspended midair after a fault was observed on the plane.

A passenger on the flight said passengers suspected the plane, with flight number VL 2102, was faulty before takeoff, but they were assured by the pilot and the crew that all was well.
A few minutes after take-off, the plane had to return to the Lagos Airport due to the problem.

“They want to kill over 100 passengers with their faulty plane” a passenger, Oladejo Olowu, told PREMIUM TIMES.

The plane was scheduled to get to Abuja before a final journey to Yola, Adamawa State.

The Medview incident happened a day after a Boeing 737 aircraft belonging to Air Peace on Monday suffered a burst tyre while preparing for take-off at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos.

The incident occurred at about 11a.m. forcing the pilot to abort the flight.

The aircraft was to convey 105 passengers from Lagos to Abuja.

    Suspended mid-air…I was wondering if the plane was put off mid-air and the passengers disembarked

    • Nothing but the truth

      Flight (trip) was suspended, the plane was not put off mid air as you literally interpreted. This is part of the problem we have in this country, quoting people out of context.

        The plane should never had taken off into sky in the first place. Typical African mentality, they managing an old plane DAT should have been trashed to begin with, check the planes ages services. I don’t fly around when am in DAT country, u can’t trust the system of politics going on with there corrupt officials, Nigeria need a revolution to tackle all our problems.
