A Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Air Beetle Aircraft today crashed in Kaduna while on a mission, NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Olatokunbo Adesanya, confirmed this evening in Abuja.

He lamented in a statement that “the only soul on board the aircraft, one of the NAF’s experienced instructor pilots, was unfortunately lost during the mishap.”

“The cause of the incident is unknown but the Chief of the Air Staff (CAS) has immediately directed the constitution of a board of inquiry to determine the immediate and remote causes of the crash,” Adesanya said.

He noted that the unfortunate incident is a tragic reminder of the hazards associated with the flying profession.

“The CAS and the entire NAF family commiserate with the relatives of the late instructor pilot,” the statement said.
