On departure from the Kotoka International Airport, the crew experienced slight operational problems with the computer system. As a result, the aircraft returned to the Air Force Base in Accra to reset the computers.
Fire extinguishers on board were used to bring the situation under control. Fire tenders from the Air Force Base and that of the main airport also arrived immediately to assist in putting off the fire completely.
Preliminary investigations indicate the fire was caused as a result of friction between the wheels and the runway surface. Special Occurrence Report has been sent to the Air Force Headquarters and a special investigation team is being composed.
