Beschrijving:
The BAC One-Eleven jet operated on a flight from Jos to Lagos via Kano. Shortly after departing Kano, the aircraft reportedly stalled. It came down in the heavily populated district of Gwammaja about half a mile from the airport on the outskirts of Kano. It sheared roofs from two-story concrete homes and sliced a mosque in half as it broke apart and burst into flames. Some 23 houses in Gwammaja area were destroyed, along with a school and the mosque.
Reportedly 5N-ESF had been on the ground for 52 days because of engine problems. In May 2002 an engine was fitted, that belonged to another grounded One-Eleven, 5N-ESD. Just ten hours after the new engine had been fitted, 5N-ESF crashed at Kano.
