    LAGOS, Dec. 21 (Xinhuanet) -- Another air disaster was averted in Nigeria as a flight operated by privately owned EAS Airlines was aborted 20 minutes after take-off in the country's capital Abuja, local media reported on Wednesday.

    The official News Agency of Nigeria said the pilot had complained of a faulty fuel filter, while The Punch newspaper quoted passengers as saying the engine of the Lagos-bound aircraft developed problem 20 minutes into the journey on Tuesday afternoon.

    "The aircraft initially found it difficult to land in Abuja, but eventually landed after hovering for 10 minutes," the newspaper said. There were 100 passengers and five crew members on board.

    On Monday, a Nigerian plane operated by Bellview Airlines made an emergency landing at the Accra international airport in Ghana after a failure in its hydraulic system. None of the 63 passengers and four crew was hurt.

    The incidents followed three other air crashes in the past two months that claims over 200 lives in the west African country, whose sky was dominated by "flying coffins" in service for more than 20 years or even over 30 year. Enditem

    Thought Bellview had been grounded, thought 737's had been grounded, maybe they are all 'hovering', waiting to land.

        heh.

        Well the nigerian authorities has gone and grounded all 737s in their airspace. A very short sighted and premature move.

          The Nigerians wasted time and money as a result of poor safety, sad.
