Two Embraer planes collided at JKIA Grounds

Kenyans and the world at large woke up in shock after Breaking News of two planes that collided at the National Carrier, Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) grounds on February 9th, Saturday 2019. It was a sudden scare and shock for people around the JKIA grounds when the two Embraer planes collided in unexplainable circumstances, while on maintenance.

According to a Facebook post by Murigi Timothy, the two planes collided while under maintenance at JKIA grounds. Murigi claimed that one of the planes under registration number 5Y-KYR, jumped, while on maintenance, and ran off ground as some of the maintenance crew scampered for safety. Some crew made frantic efforts to take control of the plane, at least preventing it from hitting the walls and another plane registration number 5Y-FFF, but their efforts could not bear any fruits.
