Indigo Emergency Landing
No injuries occurred when Indigo Airlines #6E125 Airbus veered off the runway and hit runway lights at Bangalore International Airport. The incident closed the runway for hours, diverting more than ten flights.
110 passengers and six crew escaped injury when the plane landed in heavy rain and hydroplaned off the runway veering to the right and damaging the landing gear tires on the right side of the plane.
Alarmist newspaper headlines called the event “a narrow escape” for Indigo passengers. This was probably something of an exaggeration, though it probably felt terrifying at the time.
The DGCA is investigating.
