Dana MD83 at Port Harcourt on May 2nd 2022, rejected takeoff causes brakes fire
Last Update: May 3, 2022 / 10:58:37 GMT/Zulu time
The airline stated: "Our aircraft with registration number 5N-JOY operating flight 9J 344 from Port Harcourt to Lagos on 2nd of May 2022, was set to take off when the pilot in command noticed an anomaly which he queried with Air Traffic Control before embarking on a ramp return in line with our strict safety operating procedures. However, the impact on the brakes as result of the aborted take off affected the aircraft tyres which sparked off while the aircraft was taxiing back to base."
