  1. I believe all this plan were not checked before using them again after packing them for over 5months that is bad na well I hope nobody got injured in the process

  2. Thank God for the safety and no life is lost. All this issue can be prevented before taking off from the tarmac. May God help us.

  3. The owner of the private jet and also aeroplane need to be thoroughly check before carry out daily activities. It is dangerous to be putting all these aircrafts out without checking them. We thank God that no life is wasted.

  4. I hope no life was lost and thank God no body sustained any injury. What are they investigating again to know the cause of the accident when they have already said the accident was due to break failure
    It sounds absurd to hear that a plane craft will have a break failure
    We should stop joking with serious issues like this that can cause the loss of many lives
    Routine checks should always be carried out on these jets to ascertain they are okay before putting them on route

  5. While we are mourning the loss of our friend, others are rejoicing to meet him behind the veil….may their soul rest in peace…….the aircraft should take notice.
