Kuwait bound Air India flight captain saves 153 lives

November 30, 201480 Comments


 The alert captain of an Air India flight to Kuwait averted a disaster at the airport here by detecting an engine snag just before takeoff and managed to halt the plane on the runway Saturday night. There were 153 passengers on board the plane that was to land at Goa en route to Kuwait, an AI official said, adding that they have been accommodated in hotels and the flight rescheduled for Sunday.

The AI official said the plane was speeding on the runway for takeoff at around 8 pm when the captain found malfunctioning in the engine and alerted the air-traffic control (ATC). The ATC asked him to halt the flight, which he managed with some difficulty as the Airbus-320 had picked up speed by then. The engineers found that some parts needed replacement and they were indented from Delhi, as they were not available here. The passengers 89 bound for Goa and the rest booked for Kuwait were told to disembark and the plane was towed to the bay for repairs, the AI official added.

  10. As I understand it atc told the captain to stop the plan and as long as the plane never reach v1 its not hard to stop the plane

  11. Mady ur stupid thoughts n saying keep it for ur self…..It would been much better if u was there in the flight tht time……1st the aircraft which they send in gulf country r very old….don't say someone family to hang his own family member. …its better u hang by urself so no trouble …

  12. Ur right nizami should hang the people who checked the aircraft before. ……..This would taken so many life….Thank god. …..

  13. Modi ji ne achey din diye now good days soon comeing

  14. Air India Pilots flying these Scrap planes should refuse to fly these Scrap flights if the love their own life. Pilots and crew only go on strike to ask for a salary raise. They are not bothered about other aspects of the Flights.

    Comparing flight with a car…?? LOL! What a stupid comparison.
    Before leaving home how many mechanics there to check ur car and certify it is good for the ride? u wil check the car for any mechanical fault..ok.. accepted, but it is by you not an experienced technician… so if any thing happened due to mechanical failures your family cant blame you. If they do so I'm sorry abt u.. they dont knw nothing abt car & not believ in u. U must hang yourself..!!!
    but regarding flights every airlines appointed their on technicans & engineers to check the flight before it start flying. Not by the passengers or crew..! Pilot can do the final checks only. So anything happened due to mechanical failure nobody will hang the pilot but sure the enginers hav to answer about it. Most of the flight accidents happened due to human error like irresponsible & neglegence. For more proof go through each flight accidents investigation reports online.

  18. This fight must be 20+ years old and they don't maintain. This is the final result and thanks to Captain for saving so many lives.

  19. Both Kuwait Airways and Air India send there most worn out models for flights between Kuwait and India. Classic case of life of labours/slaves taken for granted.
