Bird-hit causes flight to stop on runway
Indore: A Raipur-bound Indigo flight,
carrying 123 passengers and crew, had a narrow escape on Sunday
after a bird-hit forced the aircraft to stop on the runway
just before take-off at Devi Ahilyabai Airport here.
The 6-I-252 flight was taxiing for take-off around 3.15
PM when it was hit by a bird, the airlines spokesman said,
adding that all passengers and crew were safe.
The pilot stopped the plane immediately and avoided a
mishap. After the incident, the plane was examined by
technical experts, he said.
Arrangements were made for an alternative plane to fly
the passengers to their destinations, he added.
A slaughter house near Indore Airport is believed to be
the cause behind the incident and airport officials have
requested civic authorities to close it down to avoid such
cases in future, official sources said.
