Andhra Pradesh: Wild boar enters airport, hits IndiGo flight

Indigo-passenger faceoff CEO Aditya Ghosh writes mail to employees to boost morale Requests keeping calm

150 passengers had a close shave when an Hyderabad-bound IndiGo aircraft hit wild boar on the runway during take-off on Sunday at Vizag airport. In the panic that followed, the pilot informed the Air Traffic Controller and took to the air nevertheless to avoid a fire since the tank was full. "If a wild boar could sneak into the runway, even a terrorist also could gain entry under the cover of darkness", he said and sought immediate clearing of bushes. The crew realized there was a problem when the rear wheels failed to lift while takeoff.

The pilot returned to Visakhapatnam and flew in a pattern around the city to burn up as much fuel as possible and landed back at the airport safely. There was no way the pilot could halt the plane and so he took off. "According to standard operating procedures, the captain immediately reported the matter to the Air Traffic Control and made a decision to hold over Vizag", the airline said in a statement. "After runway inspection, the pilot carried out a precautionary landing at Vizag airport after 45 minutes for necessary inspection".

The Gurgaon-based airline said it has raised the issue of birds and wildlife endangering the safety of the passengers as well as the flight operations with the Visakhapatnam airport authorities.
