Two Indigo aircraft had a miraculous escape on Tuesday.
Guwahati: Two Indigo aircraft had a miraculous escape when they averted colliding with one another over Guwahati, as per media reports.
Reports said that the incident took place on Tuesday evening when an Indigo flight from Mumbai to Guwahati was about to land at the Lokapriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport.
At the same time, another Indigo flight, bound for Chennai, took off.
It supposedly crossed the flight path of the first aircraft.
An Indigo spokesman was quoted by media houses as saying that the flight en route to Guwahati had experienced turbulence due to monsoon and that had caused it to climb down by 250-300 feet.
This was just when the Chennai-bound aircraft was taking off.
However, the flight made a normal landing.
