There was a strong hint of trouble when the left engine lost power shortly after the aircraft departed from Abuja, Nigeria, for a flight to Lagos. Rather than diverting to a closer airport, the flight crew continued toward Lagos, said the report by the Accident Investigation Bureau of Nigeria (AIB). The right engine subsequently lost power on approach, and the Boeing MD-83 crashed in a residential area, killing all aboard and several people on the ground.
