Air India pilots keep flying despite takeoff mishap
Posted on 13th October 2018
MUMBAI: A Dubai-bound Air India Express Boeing 737 aircraft was diverted to Mumbai for an emergency landing hours after it was discovered that the underside of the plane had been badly scraped when it hit the airport compound wall while taking off from Trichy.

Although the plane was damaged and the wall broke when the wheels of the aircraft rammed into it during take-off, the pilot continued to operate the plane saying the systems were operating normally. The aircraft, which took off at 1:30 am on Friday, eventually landed at Mumbai at 5:35 am.

“The pilot in command was D Ganesh Babu, who has flying experience on the B737 aircraft of 3,600 hours including about 500 hours as commander. The first officer was captain Anurag, who has an experience of about 3,000 hours on the B737. The two pilots have been derostered pending investigation,” said a statement from the national carrier.

Following the incident, aviation minister Suresh Prabhu announced that he had ordered to put in place a third party professional organisation to look into various safety aspects at Air India. “In order to have continuous attention towards air safety, I have also ordered officials concerned to put in place a regular ‘safety compliance report’ of all airlines,” he said.
