The tyres burnt out on a Dubai-bound Air India Express plane with 130 travelers locally available hit the compound mass of the Trichy global air terminal while the aircraft was taking off from here around 1.20 am on Friday, harming an ILS (instrument landing framework) radio wire and a little part of the west side divider. In any case, the Boeing B737-800 aircraft landed securely at Mumbai air terminal around 5.35 am, in the wake of surrendering its voyage to Dubai.
Air India Express Plane Hits Airport Wall On Take Off, Landed Safely
The aircraft managed significant harm to its underbelly and undercarriage yet the pilots, unconscious of the harm, proceeded with the trip as opposed to coming back to arrive in Trichy. Enroute when pilots understood the aircraft had an issue, they did a crisis arrival in Mumbai at around 5.35am.
An Air India Express spokesperson said: “After flight IX 611 from Trichy to Dubai had taken off from Trichy at about 1.30 am today, it was reported by local Airport officials at Trichy that they have observed that Aircraft might have come in contact with the airport perimeter wall. The matter was conveyed to the pilot in command. The pilot in command reported that the aircraft systems were operating normally”.
It was chosen to redirect the aircraft to Mumbai as a careful step, said the representative.
“The flight diverted to Mumbai and landed safely at about 5.35am in Mumbai and taxied on its own power to the parking stand. All 130 passengers and 6 crew members on board the aircraft alighted safely. No one suffered any injuries,” the official statement said.
“The passengers were provided with appropriate refreshments at Mumbai and a relief aircraft was arranged to continue the flight from Mumbai to Dubai with fresh set of crew,” said AIX.
“The two pilots have been derostered pending investigation. The matter has been duly reported to the DGCA and the airline is fully cooperating with the investigation” the spokesperson said.
