Footballer John Obi Mikel Escapes Plane Mishap

Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi has escaped a plane crash.

Mikel and the other Middlesbrough players were at risk, as the club had to call off their flight home from Newport County as the plane was grounded due to engine failure.

The officials of the English Championship club called off a flight that would have taken the squad for their next league fixture.

The football world is still in mourning following missing flight saga involving Cardiff City signing, Emiliano Sala.

Mikel and other members were forced to about-turn on the Cardiff Airport runway, following their 2-0 FA Cup defeat to League Two, Newport County.

They then re-boarded the team bus and returned to Middlesbrough by road, meaning the team did not return until 7am, with the players having to sleep on the way home.

From Daily Post


  1. I was once on a plane that sat at the departure gate for over an hour because of mechanical issue. It eventually was resolved and we were able to take off, but I was not at ease for the 6 hours of the flight. I kept thinking about that Final Destination movie. The most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on, and I am not the biggest fan of flying either.

    I am glad this team was able to make it to their destination safely.

  2. What is wrong with planes these days
    One week one trouble

  3. I'm scared of traveling by air. I prefer road travel,even though it has its own disadvantages. I have not gotten over Sala's own. Ozoemena. May God protect us all. Amen!

    1. There are some travels you got no choice

    2. Will you travel by road to the abroad?

    3. Abioo,my people I got no choice. I will have to manage.

    4. one can use ship abi because me don dey fear plane now o

  4. Wow. Thank God for his life and that of the other passengers.

  5. And i learnt he has phobia for flying. This will kuku worsen the feeling. Thank God its well with them.

  6. Better to sleep inside the bus and get home late than crashing with the plane. Bad weather can affect the engine of a plane anytime.
