Air Peace flight 7191, a Boeing 737-300, suffered an accident while landing on runway 18R at Lagos-Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Nigeria.
At about 10:38 the aircraft departed Port Harcourt. The first officer was the Pilot Flying (PF) while the captain was the Pilot Monitoring (PM).
It was raining as the aircraft approached Lagos Airport with a few Cumulonimbus thunderstorm clouds at 1900 feet. At 11:26, the controller at Lagos Airport gave flight 7191 final landing clearance: "APK7191 exercise caution, runway surface is wet, wind 290°/06 kt runway 18R cleared to land".
At about 500 ft, the windscreen wiper was selected to HIGH by the pilot monitoring due to the intensity of the rain. She also reported field in sight with affirmation from the Pilot Flying. At 100 ft above ground level (AGL), the auto pilot was disengaged by the PF.
According to the captain, during the callouts: 50, 30, she noticed that the aircraft was not aligned with the centre line of the runway, and took control, after announcing "I have controls" and "corrected back on the centreline". The crew stated that, "...the right wheels touched down, simultaneously, we lost visibility and nose wheel touched down...We heard a loud screeching noise and metals grinding, we also saw a lot of debris flying around".
On touchdown both nose landing gear wheels broke away and the aircraft came to a stop with the nose gear leg buried in the runway surface.
