It was gathered that Max Air plane with the number VM1645 which was slated for take-off 1.30pm had about a 30minutes delay.

The aircraft later took off around 2:00pm with passengers filled to the brim.

It was gathered that 10 minutes after the take-off, the aircraft began to swerve around the air until it made a detour for an emergency landing.

Sources said the incident was allegedly caused by an engine failure, just as others attributed the incident to a bird strike.

Narrating the incident, one of the passengers, Dr Samaila Suleiman, said it was a near-death incident, accusing the airliner of negligence.

Mr Sulaiman disclosed that he heard a strange sound when the aircraft was taking off but dismissed any strange feeling of insecurity.

He said: “I heard a strange sound during the take-off but brushed it aside. I have used aircraft many times but had never heard such a sound during take-off.

“The cabin crew members and the pilot were helpless because they apparently lost control of the aircraft.

“No even that radio announcement was made until we saw ourselves back at the airport where we took off.

“It was a near-death experience. I and many other passengers were traumatised. Many of us cancelled to trip and returned home.”
