He further told News784, “ I kept looking, about ten minutes after I saw a plane flying over but it did not attempt to land”.
Another eyewitness who was in the vicinity of the E.T Joshua Airport told News784 he saw a man which he presumed to be a Met official checking the weather instruments which is located not too far from the exit gate.
The eyewitness further told News784 “ I also saw a female immigration officer who came out from the customs area; she looked around then some minutes after the lights were turned off on the run away”.
The eyewitness told News784 that the Airport closed at about 12:20 am on Saturday morning.
