The American pilot of the passenger jet that crashed in Lagos, Nigeria on Sunday has reported engine trouble shortly before the crash, airline officials said.
The Dana Air flight from Abuja to Lagos was in its final approach to Muritala Muhammed International Airport when the pilot radioed the control tower to declare an emergency, according an airline official. All 153 people on board, including six crew members, and at least 10 on the ground were killed when the McDonnell Douglas MD-83 slammed into a two-story residential building in Lagos, officials said.
At least 80 bodies have been recovered from the still-smoldering wreckage, authorities said Monday. They are still searching for the flight data recorder ''Black Box.''
