A tanker fuelling a Turkish Airlines plane caught fire at the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, Kano, on Tuesday night.

According to a passenger, who was to travel with his family to Istanbul on the flight, the truck was feeding fuel to the aircraft when the mishap occurred.

“The aircraft which had the burning truck under its wings made a miraculous escape, following a decision to tow it away from the fire just in time before the fuel-laden tanker burst into a towering flame,” he told TheCable.

The tanker was completely razed and part of the aircraft was damaged, leading to a cancellation of the flight.

“Fire engines at the airport emptied their contents without any serious impact on the raging fire, which burnt without let until it had consumed the oil tanker,” the passenger said.
