An airplane reportedly belonging to Overland Airways caught fire today at a Lagos airport. The plane which was undergoing technical faults and being serviced at the time of the incident caught fire all of a sudden at one of the General Aviation Terminal (GAT) hangars of the the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos.
By the time it was gathered that there was a fire explosion at the hangar the plane was already on fire, however, no one was hurt. Eyewitnesses reported that the aircraft was badly burnt before the fire service arrived to put out the fire.
