I heard an unconfirmed report about an accident in Ghana and tried to find out whether it was true or not. I didn't immediately believe what the pilot (who went there) said although it's somebody I know personnally. So why should I blindly believe what M. Afadzinu said on behalf of Ghana Airways and the G.C.A.A.? All we have got now are just rumours but nothing official.
And remember, somebody else (Aeropostale I believe) heard something on the radio in France that might give us a better idea of what happened (or what didn't happen)...
It seems that M. Afadzinu was right to assume that in the minds of most of us "DC10 + Ghana = Ghana Airways", and to defend the reputation of his airline accordingly, but I think it was hazardous to raise the issue of aviation safety in Ghana: you just need a few minutes on the internet to find out that it's a very "sensitive" subject.
FYI: Over the past eight years only, 8 jets registered in Ghana crashed (all DC-8 or B707 freighters, except one Ghana Airways DC-9 in 1997). Two of them crashed in 1999, the last one being a B707 that aborted a takeoff due to engine failures. Investigators found out that the aircraft had 32 major technical problems and that none of the pilots had a valid licence to operate that aircraft (see Aviation Safety Network in particular for more details). I guess that the only reason why Ghana is still rated Category 1 (meets ICAO standards) in the FAA's International Aviation Safety Assessment Program is that fortunately nobody got killed in all those accidents.
