Air India Flight Hit Trichy Airport Wall During Take-Off, 136 On Board

The belly of the Air India Express aircraft was damaged after hitting the Trichy airport wall

"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.

In May 2010, an Air India Express Boeing 737-800 from Dubai with 166 people onboard, over ran the runway on landing at Mangalore airport.

An airline statement said that pilots were informed about the aircraft hitting the wall only after they were airborne, who responded that the aircraft systems were operating normally.

Following the incident, minister Suresh Prabhu announced he has ordered to put in place a third party professional organisation to look into various safety aspects at Air India.

The aircraft sustained major damage to its underbelly and undercarriage but the pilots, unaware of the damage, continued with the flight instead of returning to land in Trichy.

"The 130 passengers and six crew members on-board the aircraft were alighted safely". The plane landed in Mumbai around 5.35 am. However, they were asked to divert to Mumbai anyway as a precaution, NDTV reported. "No one suffered any injuries", it added. The First Officer Captain Anurag has an experience of about 3000 hours on the B 737.

The plane's two pilots have been suspended pending an investigation.

Officials said the DGCA was probing the matter and the damage to the aircraft's belly, including the wheels, is being assessed.

The incident has been reported to the aviation regulator and Air India says it is "cooperating with the investigation".

Tamil Nadu Tourism Minister Vellamandi N Natarajan visited Tiruchirappalli airport and inspected the accident spot.
