Air Disaster Averted As IRS Airline Plane Makes Emergency Landing In Kaduna

Another air disaster was averted on Sunday 13th October 2013 as a plane belonging to IRS Airline made an emergency landing in Kaduna, north-west Nigeria.
It was reported that the aircraft’s hydraulic system developed a problem warning, thereby forcing the pilot to take a precautionary measure by asking ground control to confirm that all gears were down and locked.
“The front tyres didn't come out on time and the pilot had to land the plane without its tyres out,” an airport source said.
We have also reliably learnt that the plane, 3390 was carrying passengers from Lagos to Kaduna.
“There was no casualty” the source confirmed to us.
The aircraft had 89 passengers on board.
Some days ago, a chartered Associated Airlines plane crashed in Lagos seconds after take-off, killing 15 people.
Meanwhile, the last incident in Kaduna airport was on 20 August 2010, when a Chanchangi Airlines Flight 334, operated by Boeing 737-200 5N-BIF struck the localizer antenna and landed short of the runway. Several passengers were slightly injured and the aircraft was substantially damaged. Chanchangi Airlines later suspended operations following the accident.
