There was a drama at the Moi International Airport today after a plane was forced to land minutes after setting off.
According to reports from reliable sources, the Jambojet JM 8603 was forced to return 15 minutes after beginning the journey when the pilot noticed that the plane door was open. The pilot stated that the move was prompted by a "Door Open" warning flashing on his control panel.
After landing, the problem was solved and the pilot ensured that everything was okay. He commenced the journey again to enable the passengers to reach their destination on time.
Here were some of the comments from Kenyans after the news went viral on social media:
"Before taking off the door open warming ought to have flashed, 15minutes in the air with a door open," Kazungu
"Conductor turned crew. Old habits die hard." Mohammed
"This is scary," Washington
