PhotoNews: Nigeria's plane crash nairaland

A Dana Airline passenger commercial flight crashed and killed all the 153 passengers on board

"A commercial airliner crashed into a densely populated neighborhood in Nigeria’s largest city on Sunday, killing all 153 people on board and others on the ground in the worst air disaster in nearly two decades for the troubled nation. The cause of the Dana Air crash remained unknown Sunday night, as firefighters and police struggled to put out the flames around the wreckage of the Boeing MD83 aircraft. Authorities could not control the crowd of thousands gathered around to see the crash site, with some crawling over the plane’s broken wings and standing on a still-smoldering landing gear."  - Associate Press

titleSoldiers disperse onlookers on June 3, 2012 at the scene of the crash of a Dana Airline plane that plunged onto a plot containing a church, a two-storey residential building and a printing shop in Lagos. The plane carrying 153 people from Abuja to Lagos plunged into the Toyin residential area of the Iju Ishaga neighborhood of Nigeria's largest city, with all those aboard feared dead, an inferno igniting at the scene and buildings badly damaged. Besides the passengers feared dead, a number of others on the ground were also believed killed. An emergency official said around 10 burnt bodies had been removed from a damaged building and were thought to be separate from passengers. President Goodluck Jonathan declared three days of national mourning for victims of the horrific crash and pledged an investigation as rescuers rushed to pull out survivors from the neighbourhood near the airport.
