NTSB Assists Government Of Nigeria In Aviation Accident

Boeing Aircraft Went Down, Fatally Injuring All 153 On Board

The NTSB is dispatching an investigator to assist the government of Nigeria in its investigation of the crash of a Dana Air Boeing MD-83 airplane, Flight # 0992.

On June 3, 2012 at about 1151 local time, the airplane, en route from Abuja to Lagos Nigeria, crashed outside the airport into a two story building. All 153 passengers and crew onboard were fatally injured, and an undetermined number of ground fatalities and injuries also occurred.

As the state of design and manufacture of the Boeing MD-83, the NTSB has designated Senior Aviation Accident Investigator, Mr. Dennis Jones, as the traveling U.S. Accredited Representative.  Mr. Jones will be assisted from NTSB headquarters by investigative staff specializing in operational factors, powerplants, and airworthiness as well as advisors from the FAA, Boeing, and Pratt & Whitney.

The investigation is being conducted by the Nigerian Accident Investigation Bureau, which will release all information.
