The Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero, and many others escaped death after engine of a Max Air aircraft flying the Kano-Abuja route failed yesterday.
According to Daily Nigerian the fault was noticed 10 minutes after take-off from the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport.
The Max Air plane with number VM1645, scheduled for take-off at 1.30 p.m, had about a 30minutes delay.
The aircraft took off around 2:00 pm but, after 10 minutes, began to swerve around the air until a detour for an emergency landing.
