The Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB) yesterday cleared the air on some media reports on the serious incident involving Skybird Air Gulfstream G IV Aircraft recently.
In an official statement issued and signed recently by AIB’s general manager, public affairs, Mr. Tunji Oketunbi, the Bureau stated that, it must be restated that AIB has not done any analysis or identified the causal factor for this serious incident.
AIB added that it would therefore, be misleading to report that the Bureau blamed any organisation or revealed the cause of the occurrence. According to AIB, all information relating to weather were as received verbatim from the statement of the crew.
The Bureau however, promised that it will still come out with fuller reports after conducting thorough investigations. It further confirmed that the recent preliminary report 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, was based on the information received during the preliminary investigation, which was basically information gathering stage including interview with the crew. Every accident or serious incident reported, AIB said undergoes numerous stages of investigation, which qualifies each respective report (Preliminary Report, m Interim Statement, and Final Report) released by the Bureau.
It also noted that the sole objective of the Bureau’s investigation and report is to prevent accidents and incidents from reoccurrence and not to apportion blame or liability, whether criminal or civil.
Accident Investigation Bureau, Nigeria (AIB) was established by the Civil Aviation Act of 2006 to investigate accident and serious incidents in accordance with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Annex 13.
