World's worst airplane crash kills

By AP avid Reuters
LAGOS, Nigeria - At least 180
people were reported dead in the
world's worst air crash after a
chartered airliner, bringing 202
Moslem pilgrims home from Mec-
ca, crashed and caught fire yes-
terday at Kano airport in northern
Nigeria.
Officials reported 30 survived,I
all of them severely burned.
This would make the crash the
world's deadliest air disaster in-
volving a single aircraft. One hun-
dred seventy six persons died in
the crash of a Soviet Aeroflot jet
near Moscow last Oct. 13.
The Boeing 707 of the Royal,
Jordanian Airlines b u r s t into
flames as it touched down at
Kano's tiny airport, witnesses said.!
The pilot was identified by a
Royal Jordanian spokesman in
Amman as Capt. John Waterman,
an American whose wife and chil-
dren live in Beirut, Lebanon. The
spokesman said the airline had
been informed that he and the
seven other crew members were
among the survivors.
Waterman's wife, Elly, told a
newsman in Beirut she had heard
from aviation sources that the run-
way collapsed at the point at which
the aircraft touched down.

Crowds at the airport arrival
lounge screamed in horror as the
roaring, blazing j e t careened
across the runway, hurling wreck-!
age, luggage and bodies in all
directions.
Hundreds of soldiers, policemen,
voluntary workers and Red Cross
personnel raced to the airport
within minutes of the thunderous
crash.
Aviation experts flown from
Lagos to the walled city of Kano
started investigations on the cause:
of the mid-morning crash.
They were working on a number
of theories, including possible poor
visibility.
The crash here was the 11th in
little over a year in which 100 or
more persons were killed in vari-
ous parts of the world.
