NAF has reacted to the Nigerian Air Force plane crash that killed two pilots.

Air Marshal Oladayo Amao, the Chief of Air Staff, has set up an Accident Investigation Board to figure out what caused the Super Mushshak trainer plane to crash at the NAF Base in Kaduna on Tuesday.

The Nigerian Air Force, according to Amao, will thoroughly investigate the cause of the plane crash.

The CAS expressed its condolences to the families, friends, and colleagues of the two pilots, “Flight Lieutenant Abubakar Muhammed Alkali and Flight Lieutenant Elijah Haruna Karatu, who died in the tragic accident,” in a statement by Director Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet.

“Air Marshal Amao had formed an Accident Investigation Board upon receiving the sad news of the crash yesterday, to determine the immediate and remote causes of the crash,” according to the statement. He assured the officers, airmen, and airwomen of the 401 Flying Training School in Kaduna earlier today that all measures would be taken to prevent a repeat of the incident.

“The tragic incident of yesterday’s trainer plane crash serves as yet another tragic reminder of the perilous nature of the military flying profession, as well as the daily risks NAF pilots take to ensure Nigeria’s territorial integrity.”
