Murtala Muhammed International Airport 

The pilots reported engine trouble with the Boeing 83-MD aircraft before it crashed on its way into Lagos. The scene of the tragedy, in the Iju-Ishanga neighborhood, is a densely populated section of apartment complexes and businesses bordered by Lagos' Murtala Muhammed International Airport, pictured above in 2007. In 2009, the same Boeing 83-MD Boeing aircraft lost engine power due to a bird strike. (Photo: PIUS UTOMI EKPEI/AFP/Getty Images)
