Qatar airplane lands safely after making a distress call at MMIA

A Qatar Airplane coming from Doha has landed safely at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport Lagos, after a tyre  problem occured mid-flight.

Airport and security agencies had put apparatus in place for a possible emergency landing after the aircraft made a distress call.

The Qatar owned plane however landed without hitches.

The management of the airline and airport authorities are briefing newsmen on the incident now.

Channels Television’s aviation correspondent, Bukola Joe-Oketunbi, who inspected the air plane after it landed, said “the tyre lost pressure and the pilot knew he might land and not taxi so he radioed for emergency landing but fortunately after many trials the tyre retracted and he landed without help”

Joe-Oketunbi said the pilot radioed for emergency as a precautionary measure.

More details soon…
