Nigerian Air Force F7 crashes at Kaduna
A Chengdu F-7NI of the Nigerian Air Force crashed yesterday near Kaduna Airport. The pilot survived the accident that happened during a training mission. It’s the third loss of this type of fighter aircraft for the NAF in less than fourteen months time, after it entered service in 2010. A F-7NI crashed at Kano Airport in March 2011 and a FT-7NI near Gboko in May 2011. This means that the Air Force has two FT-7NI (training variant) and ten F-7NI fighters remaining in its fleet.
