Investigation into Skybird serious incident still ongoing- AIB states

ACCIDENT Investigation Bureau, Nigeria (AIB) has reiterated that the Bureau’s sole objective is to prevent accidents and incidents from re-occurrence and not to apportion blame or liability, whether criminal or civil.

This is as it frowned on the reportage ascribing blame on the serious incident involving Gulfstream G IV Aircraft belonging to Skybird Air Limited with the Registration Number 5N-BOD, which occurred at Nnamidi Azikwe International Airport Abuja on September 12, 2018 to some agency or individual.

According to the AIB, every accident or serious incident reported undergoes numerous stages of investigation, which qualifies each respective report (Preliminary Report, Interim Statement, and Final Report) released by the Bureau.

AIB’s recent preliminary report on the serious incident involving the Skybird Air Limited Gulfstream G IV Aircraft with the Registration Number 5N-BOD, according to the Bureau, was basically information gathering stage including interview with the crew.

The statement by General Manager Public Relations, Mr. Tunji Oketunbi read, “It must be restated that AIB has not done any analysis or identified the causal factor for this serious incident. It would therefore be misleading to report that the Bureau blamed any organisation or revealed the cause of the occurrence.”

“All information relating to weather were as received verbatim from the statement of the crew. AIB will still come out with fuller reports after conducting thorough investigations.”
