Another Plane Crash in Nigeria
This one (Guardian article, BBC article) happened in Port Harcourt with a plane flying from Abuja. Among the 103 people who died, 75 were school children on their way home for the Christmas holidays. This is such a tragedy, like the one that happened barely a month and a half ago. Bad weather was believed to be the cause of the crash. I only hope that we learn lessons from these unbelievably sad events, otherwise what's the point? I am yet to hear of any changes being made by Bellview Airlines as a result of October's crash, or indeed from the national aviation authorities.
