Sisters Jennifer and Josephine Onita of Missouri City, Texas, were among those killed in the crash, the Houston Chronicle reported. They traveled to Lagos to attend a wedding.
Jennifer Onita, 28, recently worked in aeronautics engineering for a NASA contractor and was a graduate student at the University of Houston, the paper reported. Josephine Onita, 23, managed all five locations of the family’s financial planning at tax services business, the Chronicle said.
Also among the dead are six Chinese citizens who were on board the flight, the Chinese Embassy in Nigeria said Monday.
According to witnesses, the passenger plane appeared to be coming in high with its nose up when it crashed, hitting the ground tail first, Wason said.
The flight, coming from the Nigerian capital of Abuja, crashed at 3:43 p.m. (10:43 a.m. ET) Sunday in the neighborhood of Iju Ishaga, just north of the airport, according to the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority.
The crash site was 11 miles (18 kilometers) from the runway, Wason said.
The airplane was 22 years old and was purchased from Alaska Airlines. It underwent a routine maintenance checkup every 200 hours, and it had just been inspected three days earlier, Wason said.
The Nigerian aviation authority has not asked Dana Air to ground its planes, though the airline canceled all its flights Monday as show of respect for the victims of the crash, he said.
Dana Air, which is privately owned and based in Lagos, began operations in 2008.
Lagos, with a population of more than 7.9 million people, is one of the fastest-growing cities in the world. It is Nigeria’s commercial hub.
