The US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has given a briefing on the helicopter crash that killed the Group Chief Executive Officer of Access Holdings plc Herbert Wigwe, his wife, their son, a former Group Chairman of the Nigerian Exchange Group, Abimbola Ogunbanjo, as well as two crew members. In a briefing on Sunday, Feb. 11, the US NTSB said reports suggest that a wintry weather condition was among the factors that contributed to the chopper crash that claimed six lives. At the briefing, a National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) member, Michael Graham, said: “The team methodically and systematically reviews all evidence and considers all potential factors to determine the probable cause of the crash. “The crew consisted of a pilot in command and a safety pilot. The accident flight was operated by Orbic Air LLC as a Part 135 charter flight. Witness reports of the weather conditions at the time of the accident suggest rain and a wintry mix.” According to Graham, there were no details on the passengers who boarded the aircraft. He said that “any names will be released through the coroners office”. Abimbola Ogunbanjo  (From left to right) Herbert Wigwe,  his son, and his wife Chizoba Wigwe He also stated that the “helicopter was not equipped with a cockpit voice recorder or a flight data recorder.

As the investigation continues, other parties could be named. “The BEA the French aviation accident investigation agency will serve as an accredited representative because France is a state of the manufacturer of the Airbus helicopter and the Turbomeca engine.” Watch the briefing below.      View this post on Instagram           A post shared by Lindaikejiblog (@lindaikejiblogofficial) The post US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) gives details on the helicopter crash that killed Ogunbanjo, Wigwe, wife, and son (video) appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
