Nose Wheel Drops Off.
09 October 2008 @ 22:20

Mumbai/New Delhi, October 9 A Delhi-bound Go Air flight with 117 passengers on board made an emergency landing at New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI) this afternoon after the aircraft developed a technical snag in its landing gear. All 123 on board, including six-member crew, were safe.

According to officials at Mumbai airport, one of the two nose-wheels of the plane came off when it was taking off. It was the bird watchers at the airport who first saw the nose-wheel fall from the plane, they said. “Our safety officers and bird scarers played a crucial role in alerting the Air Traffic Control and airline officials in time so that necessary action could be taken,” a spokesperson of the Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL) said.  An airline official later said in Delhi: “The pilot noticed the problem mid-air and immediately informed the ATC. After consultation with both Mumbai and Delhi airports, it was decided that emergency landing conditions would have to be put in place.”
