Technical snag forces AI plane to land in Patna

 Thursday, June 28, 2018 


Air India planeAn Air India flight en route to Delhi had to perform an emergency landing at the Patna airport reportedly due to a bird hit though that was later refuted by the pilot.

A news agency reported that flight AI 410, with 124 passengers, was forced to make an emergency landing at Patna’s Jay Prakash Narayan Airport – from where it took off – after a bird-hit caused one of the engines to develop a snag.

All passengers are reportedly safe and were deplaned.

It is learnt that the plane is being inspected for damage and passengers would be put on another plane for Delhi.

This is the second major aerial scare on Indian skies on Thursday after a chartered flight crashed in Mumbai, killing five.

However in an update later, Rajender Singh Lahauria, Airport Director in Patna, has said that the pilot of the flight cited technical reasons for the emergency landing and that there is no mention of a bird-hit.
