He noted that the country is in the mid-stream of rainy season which is usually characterized by severe thunderstorm and line squall and its attendant turbulence, micro busts, lightning and low-level wind shear.

Dr. Demuren further explained that such weather conditions could be deadly to aircraft on approach or departure from an airport and have been responsible for a number of fatal accidents in the world and in our country, Nigeria. ( Continues below….. )
