An aviation expert, Benson Ikponwosa, has attributed the crash of Dana Airline which occurred in June to shortage of fuel.

Ikponwosa, who was a guest at the Channels Television breakfast show, Sunrise Daily, said this is the only logical explanation to the unfortunate crash.

The aviation expert who was speaking against the backdrop of Saturday’s Helicopter crash which killed the former Kaduna State governor, Patrick Yakowa; former National Security Adviser, Andrew Azazi and for others, said a plane that left Abuja with its two engines intact could not have lost both engines if aircraft had adequate supply of fuel.

“Tell me how an air plane, (which) happily took off from Abuja, flew for about 55 minutes to Lagos. It didn’t lose two engines on the way until it got to Lagos. It is impossible. The only way those two engines could have packed up would have been if the guy ran out of fuel,” he said.

The Dana crash killed all 153 passengers and crew on-board.
