Panic grips Passengers as Airline’s door allegedly opens during flight
Passengers aboard a Nigerian air carrier, Dana Airline, were sent into a state of panic when the door of their plane fell off upon landing.
One of the passengers on the flight, Ola Brown, took to his Twitter page to narrate his experience.
“Flew Dana. Exit door was unstable throughout the the flight. As we touched down, it fell off. Scary stuff,” he wrote on Twitter.
“I was closer to the front so when I heard the sound, (I) thought it was an explosion. (I) couldn’t quite comprehend that it (the door) had just fallen off.”
Another passenger, Dapo Sanwo, said the door panel was not tightly fixed in a place all through the flight. He described the situation as an indication of “lack of maintenance.”
Below is Brown and Dapo’s tweets:
