According to him, he said the crew lost visual contact with the ground at landing due to a “brownout.

He stressed that the brownout is caused by landing in a dry, sandy environment.

Caverton Helicopters Limited did not conduct a site survey of the landing field prior to the flight and did not carry out safety and risk assessment,” he said.

A helicopter conveying the Vice President to a campaign rally in Kogi State had crash-landed in Kabba on February 2.
