There was chaos at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos, after two airplanes collided on Wednesday.

An Airbus A330-243 owned by Middle East Airlines with registration number OD-MEA, ran into a Boeing 777 airplane with registration number TC-LJC operated by Turkish Airlines.

The Middle East airbus ran into the Turkish cargo flight, which was parked at the international airport apron, according to the Daily Sun.

The plane had to disembark its passengers who were already on board.
