Nigerian Air Force King Air crashes, seven dead

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-56145992
Seven people have died after a Nigerian military plane crashed short of a runway in the capital Abuja on Sunday morning, according to officials.

The Nigerian Air Force plane had reported engine failure, the military spokesman tweeted.

The plane was on the way to Minna, in the northern state of Niger to try to rescue 42 people who had been kidnapped.

The chief of air staff has ordered an immediate investigation
Another engine failure not long after take-off, apparently - but this time with fatal results, unlike the Denver UAL B777.
