Close shave for pas­sen­gers as boar strays onto run­way

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - Nation -

MUM­BAI: Nearly 160 pas­sen­gers and crew on board a Hy­der­abad­bound IndiGo flight from Visakha­p­at­nam had a nar­row escape when a wild boar strayed onto the run­way and came un­der the air­craft when it was in the last stage of taxi­ing. As the pi­lot could not have re­jected take-off at that time, he was forced to get the air­craft air­borne but landed back to as­sess pos­si­ble dam­age as a pre­cau­tion.
