News Plane Crashes — 26 November 2017

A Starbow Airline aircraft on a flight from Accra to Kumasi overshot the runaway at Kotoka International Airport as it attempted takeoff on Saturday.

The plane, with 63 passengers and five crew members, ended up in the fencing around the airport, leaving dozens of passengers traumatised.

Deputy Energy Minister, William Owuraku Aidoo, was one of the passengers aboard. He suggested that bad weather could have contributed to the failure of the pilot to get the aircraft off the ground. He confirmed that most of the passengers were traumatised.

“It went off the tarmac and ended somewhere quite far,” one of the traumatised passengers told GhanaWeb. “I thought I was going to die.”

Shortly after the incident, a fire service truck went to the scene and was the first to help passengers off the aircraft.

Apart from the trauma, most passengers escaped unhurt.

But sources say five of them were rushed to the hospital for treatment.
