Captain Simisola Ajibola who operated the Air Peace flight on July 23, which had nose wheel collapse, debunks reports, saying the aircraft landed without tyres.

She said the incident, which took place at the international runway of the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos, happened after the aircraft touched down.

“We had a very serviceable aircraft. Our aircraft are machines that are well maintained. It wasn’t the first flight of that day. When we flew the aircraft, it was perfectly in good shape.

“The report about initial landing without tyres is not true. The incident happened after we touched down.  I didn’t go into the air without tyres, we weren’t on a descent without tyres. Some reports say we called for an emergency while in the air and that is not true. It was after we landed, we asked for emergency services. So whatever happened, happened on the runway that day.”
