One of the passengers on the flight, Ola Brown, took to his Twitter page to narrate his experience.
“Flew Dana. Exit door was unstable throughout flight. As we touched down, it fell off. Scary stuff,” he wrote on twitter.
“I was closer to the front so when I heard the sound, (I) thought it was an explosion. (I) couldn’t quite comprehend that it (the door) had just fallen off.”
Another passenger, Dapo Sanwo, said the door panel was loose all through the flight. He described the situation as an indication of “lack of maintenance.”
