The flight initially took off from Mumbai in India with almost 150 passengers onboard. The emergency landing was followed by a ruptured tyre in the main landing gear.

 

 

The Kenyan Airlines flight KQ 205 took off from Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai at 6.35 am local time.

The officials later found out that the faulty landing gear got shredded after the emergency landing.
