On 20th April 2017 at 0633hrs, Boeing 737-500 and Boeing 737-300 aircraft belonging to Air Peace Airlines Nigeria Limited with registration numbers 5N-BQR and 5N-BQP respectively were involved in a ground collision. There were five crew members on board 5N-BQR.
The crew positioned to the aircraft 5N-BQR at about 0600hrs and the Captain did a walk-around while the First Officer carried out the pre-flight checks on-board the aircraft. The Captain during walk-around, assessed the parking bay and observed that 5N-BQP was parked in an adjacent position which would reduce the maneuvering space available to 5N-BQR. 5N-BQR had been parked overnight between 5N-BQP and a B737-700 with registration 5N-MJJ belonging to Arik Airlines Nigeria Limited, parked at Bay 5 of the “Domestic Terminal 1 (DT1)”
