The Let 410 departed Jos at 19:34 for a flight to Maiduguri. The crew had been told by air traffic control that visibility at Maiduguri was nine kilometers. During the flight they were informed that it had reduced to five kilometers. When they reached Maiduguri, however, visibility was around just 150 m, due to a dust storm. The aircraft crash-landed near the airport while on approach to runway 05. Nigerian Aviation Safety Initiative (NASI) officials said that irregular power supply and control of air field lighting may have been contributory factors to the crash.
The operator is also been quoted as "Air Eagle".
