More Air Force planes likely to crash –Retd Air Commodore Balogun


Air Commodore and Veteran fighter pilot Abayomi Balogun, said that the increase in military combat against terror, could result to more plane crashes involving the military.

Balogun reacting to the plane crash that happened few days ago at the Kaduna Airport in which the Chief of Army Staff died alongside three generals and seven others, said the results of the investigation into the crash will likely remain a secret only known to the Nigerian military.

The security expert, who before retirement logged in more than 2500 flying hours, said, because the country is at war, if the report of the investigation into the crash is released, the enemies of the country would take advantage of it.

“I served in the Air Force for 33 years and we know what we go through, so when people come up with different claims that the aircraft crashed because of this reason or that, everything right now is based on assumption. The cause of the accident would be determined by the Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB) who are currently looking into it but for some of us who have experience in the field, we can put one and one together and say these are the likely causes. However, the final report will come from the AIB which is a civil agency”.
