A Turkish Airline plane on wednesday 23rd at the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, Kano, caught fire while fueling. The incident happened around 11pm.

It took the prompt intervention of the fire service at the airport to avert what could have been a major disaster.

According to findings, the aircraft, with a sitting capacity of 170 passengers and registration number TC-241, had touched down at the tarmac of the airport from Istanbul, while it caught fire as a result of technical fault in the process of fueling.

An airport personnel who claimed anonymity disclosed that the fuel tanker was partly razed and the aircraft “slightly damaged”.

“It was God who saved the aircraft. Men of the Airport Fire Service mobilized to the scene immediately. The good thing was that the fueling was through a tanker, which partially caught fire but the fire was promptly put out, if it was underground fueling, it would have been a disaster.” he said.
Media Consultant to former Vice President of Nigeria Atiku Abubakar, who was at the airport cos he was about traveling with his family said,

“The Airbus 340 aircraft which had the burning truck under its wings made a miraculous escape following a decision to tow it away from the fire just in time before the fuel-laden tanker burst into a towering flame.

“The flight taking my family and I, among many other passengers to Istanbul from Kano was cancelled a short while ago following indications that the aircraft, even though not destroyed, was partly damaged on its wing.

“Fire engines at the airport emptied their contents without any serious impact on the raging fire, which burnt without let until it had consumed the oil tanker.” he said.

Nigerian On Missing Algerian Plane!


The pilot asked for permission to change route because of a sand storm around 20 minutes into the flight, said Burkina Faso Transport Minister Jean Bertin Ouedrago.
He said the plane's passenger list included 51 French citizens.
Also on the jet were 27 Burkina Faso nationals, eight Lebanese, six Algerians, five Canadians, four Germans, two Luxemburg nationals, one Swiss, one Belgium, one Egyptian, one Ukrainian, one Nigerian, one Cameroonian and one Malian.
The six crew members were Spanish, according to the Spanish pilots' union.
While he listed no Cubans among the passengers, Ouagadougou Airport's official website said Mariela Castro, daughter of Cuban president Raul Castro and niece of former Cuban leader Fidel Castro, was on the plane.
A French army spokesman said: "Two Mirage 2000 jets based in Africa were dispatched to try to locate the Air Algerie plane.
"They will search an area from its last known location along its probable route."
Flight AH5017 is owned by Spanish private airline Swiftair and operated by Air Algerie.
Swiftair said the aircraft took off from Burkina Faso at 1.17am local time and was supposed to land in Algiers at 5.10am local time but never reached its destination.
The McDonnell Douglas MD-83 had been missing for hours before news of its disappearance was made public.
Ouagadougou is in a nearly straight line south of Algiers, separated by Mali where unrest continues in the north of the country.
Airlines had been warned not to fly over Mali in recent days, Sky News understands.
However, a senior French official said it is unlikely that fighters in Mali could shoot down a plane.
They are known to have shoulder-fired weapons which could not hit an aircraft travelling at a cruising altitude of some 33,000ft.
The plane was near Gao international airport in Mali when it dropped off radar.

He said the plane's passenger list included 51 French citizens.

Man United Off To A Flying Start!


Wayne Rooney, Reece James and Ashley Young all scored twice as Manchester United began the Louis van Gaal era with a 7-0 win over LA Galaxy.

Danny Welbeck, who opened the scoring in the 13th minute, was also on target in United's first game of their pre-season tour of north America, played in front of 86,432 spectators at the Pasadena Rose Bowl.

Van Gaal opted to start the match with three centre-backs – Chris Smalling, Jonny Evans and Phi Jones – while Antonio Valencia and teenage debutant Luke Shaw were used as wingbacks, with first-choice keeper David De Gea in goal.

Another summer signing, Ander Herrera, also made his debut in midfield alongside Darren Fletcher while Juan Mata, Rooney and Welbeck started in a 3-5-2 formation.

Mata twice went close early on before he set up Welbeck to fire in a spectacular opener from 25 yards.

That was the way it remained until three minutes before the break when Rooney added a second from the penalty spot after AJ Delagarza had handled Valencia's cross into the box.

And in first-half injury time, Rooney netted his second and United's third with a simple finish from Welbeck's cross.

Van Gaal made nine changes at the break bringing on Anders Lindegaard, Rafael, Michael Keane, Tyler Blackett, James, Shinji Kagawa, Tom Cleverley, Nani and Ashley Young.

Just after the hour mark, 20-year-old James side-footed the fourth from Young’s low cross with three more goals arriving in the final seven minutes, James netting his second of the game on the rebound after Young’s initial strike had been saved.

It was 6-0 on 88 when Young collected Herrera's assist to round the keeper and score from a tight angle and the former Aston Villa winger completed the scoring two minutes later as he latched onto Rafael's pass.

United are back in action on Saturday night when they take on Roma in Denver. Sky news

Another Plane Disappears With 110 OnBoard!

Algeria Plane 'Disappears From Radar'


An Algerian passenger plane has reportedly disappeared from radar while flying from the West African country of Burkina Faso.

The airliner carrying 110 passengers and six crew was flying from Burkina Faso's capital Ouagadougou to Algiers when it vanished around 50 minutes into the flight.

"In keeping with procedures, Air Algerie has launched its emergency plan," Algeria's APS state news agency quoted the airline as saying.

Flight AH5017 is owned by Spanish private airline Swiftair and operated by Air Algerie.

Swiftair said the aircraft took off from Burkina Faso at 1.17am local time and was supposed to land in Algiers at 5.10am local time but never reached its destination.

The Airbus A320's flight path was not immediately clear.

Ouagadougou is in a nearly straight line south of Algiers, passing over Mali where unrest continues in the north of the country.

However, a senior French official said it is unlikely that fighters in Mali could shoot down a plane.

They are known to have shoulder-fired weapons which could not hit an aircraft travelling at a cruising altitude of some 33,000ft.
