Another Weekend Crash

After getting a 5+ year respite from plane crashes, Nigeria was again thrown into turmoil last weekend. First a Nigerian cargo plane went down in Ghana, then a suicide bomber and worst of it all, a Dana Air (Flight 992) plane fell out of the sky on a building minutes to landing. Sad indeed.

One curious thing about this though, the last major air disasters in Nigeria all happened on a weekend. Check this out.

May 4, 2002 (Saturday): EAS Airlines Flight 4226. 145 dead

October 22, 2005 (Saturday): Bellview Airlines Flight 210. 117 dead

Dec. 10, 2005 (Saturday): Sosoliso Airlines Flight 1145. 108 dead

October 29, 2006 (Sunday): ADC Airlines Flight 53. 97 dead

June 3, 2012 (Sunday): Dana Air Flight 992. 193 dead

Could it be that everyone involved with air safety just tunes off during the weekend, thinking only of the “miliki” ahead?
