Mobil Oil’s jet runs into Lagos airport fence 


A brake failure has caused a jet belonging to Mobil Oil Nigeria to run into a fence at the General Aviation Terminal of the Lagos Airport on Friday.

The King Air Jet was re-parking when the driver rammed into the fence, according to an eyewitness.

“The accident happened around 10am at a tarmac beside Bristow Helicopter Hanger 3. The brake of the jet was not functioning which led to the collision of the jet with the fence of Bristow Helicopter hanger,” the eyewitness said.

It was gathered that officials of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) have visited the scene of the incident to ascertain the cause of the accident.

The King Air 200 jet with registration number 5N-HIS is being operated by Mobil Oil Nigeria-Wings Aviation.
