Something related to this Toyota thing (although its not a Toyota car its a Audi), possible "attack" or dummy run on the Aircraft?

So far we know that the car crashed through the Security Barrier, went across the Airfield to the Runway and ended up lodged between the engine and the Fuselage of the Aircraft.
The MSM is keeping quiet about this incident anyway.

It's very curious that the MSM is keeping quiet.

I would imagine that there is either someone "important" on the plane or in the car, that they do not wish to shed any light on for some reason.

I wonder how they would be reporting it, if it had happened in Germany, France, UK, USA, etc.

There's something interesting here, and we could do with finding out more.

Just looking at the way that the car is jammed underneath the fuselage of the aircraft, it looks like it's suffered a collapse of the suspension on the front-left.

Either that or it has become stuck at such an odd angle that it just doesn't seem quite "right" to me.

The windscreen also appears to be intact, and unbroken. There certainly aren't any pieces of broken glass in the frame, indicating a smashed windscreen. It's very odd.

I would like to bring up a theory here.

Could the CIA be outsourcing their hits now
due to more scrutiny by the truthers.
They hire some cheap hitmen to dispose
of their political enemies and those amateurs
they hire fail at their job. Just last week a car
was used to run over and hurt a metals market
whistleblower and he failed to kill him. And
now this.

This makes 2 in one week cars were used.

However, we do not know the contents of
that vehicle under the plane. It may have been
rigged with explosives that didn't detonate.
I do hope there is a follow-up to this story.

Huh? It's in Nigeria. Not sure why the "MSM" would find it exactly 'breaking news' --- it would have to be one heck of a slow news day.

FWIW, I already determined that the airplane involved is a Boeing 737, which got me looking into this Nigerian airline (Arik), since I've never heard of them before....

They don't have a very large fleet:

25 airplanes total ( and now, one down for a while, for maintenance!

I'm never comfortable with an airline such as this (although, in order to fly into the US they at least meet some minimum standards of training, in order to be allowed in...the pilots and equipment that is long-range, that is...) but, still...wouldn't be MY first choice, were I to have a need to travel in the vicinity.

Most probably an accident, or at most, a disgruntled employee?

Except, an Audi is kinda-sorta nice car to destroy so flagrantly. Still, who knows ? (Have heard of Audis with acceleration problems, in the past...)
