Sept 15, 2014 – Nigerian Military Fighter Jet NAF466 Crashed In Gombi Adamawa State” – Farmers Speak

The Alpha Jet (NAF 466) belonging to the Nigerian Air Force declared missing by the Defence Headquarters in its Adamawa State’s operations may have been sighted by residents before it crashed.

The plane was said to have crashed on Saturday at Gabun village near Gaanda, in Gombi Local Government of the state.

Local farmers in Gombi Local Government Area of the state yesterday claimed to have sighted an aircraft that crashed at a place near Gabun primary school.

The residents said they saw a ‘low-flying jumbo jet’ matching the description of the missing Alpha Jet after it disappeared on Friday.

Several residents of Hawul, a border town in Borno State, also said they saw an aircraft in military colours with green-red-stripes flying so low over the mountains as the plane’s doors were clearly visible.

The residents, who are predominantly farmers, claimed they were disturbed by the incredibly loud noise on Friday, with the plane travelling from north to south-east, towards Hawul– Gabun.

A witness was said to have noted that “I’ve never seen a jet flying so low over our mountains before. We’ve seen planes, but I’m sure that this was not one of those. I could even make out the doors on the plane clearly.

“It’s not just me; several other residents have reported seeing the same thing. Some people got out of their houses to see what was causing the tremendous noise too.”

According sources, the plane may have crashed at Gabun, near a primary school, but without hurting the natives, as the pupils were reportedly not in session during the incident.

Gabun is a mountainous terrain, which runs through Biu in Borno State.

The village is a short distance from Michika and Madagali Local Government areas of the state where the military had engaged the Boko Haram terrorists last week in a bid to rout them from the areas they claimed they were in control.

It could, however, not be ascertained as at press time whether the two pilots said to have been on board survived or not, but a statement on the issue was still being expected by the Defence Headquarters .

    Since we have not seen the debris of the jet. i am still thinking loud. this whole thing points to the fact that there is an insider. one of the pilots is a sell out , a paid agent. the bokos would have shown us the debris or the dead co pilot. worst still the guy beheaded didn’t look crashed, or did he parachute.
