The Accident Investigation Bureau has released the preliminary report of the helicopter crash involving the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.
The Commissioner, AIB, Mr. Akin Olateru, on Thursday revealed that the crew lost visual contact with the ground at landing due to a “brownout which is caused by landing in a dry, sandy environment.”
“Caverton Helicopters Limited did not conduct site survey of the landing field prior to the flight and did not carry out safety and risk assessment,” he said.
Plateau however informed that investigation was still ongoing.
A helicopter conveying the Vice President to a campaign rally in Kogi State had crash landed in Kabba on February 2.
Nobody died or sustained injury in the crash.
