Bangalore Airport resumes its operationMarch 28th, 2008 - 1:07 pm ICT by admin
Bangalore, Mar 28 (ANI): The Bangalore Airport has resumed its operations after the runway has been cleared off.
The runway was blocked after a small aircraft of Kingfisher Airlines with 29 people on board to Hyderabad hit a dog, leading to the collapse of its nose wheel shortly before take-off.
Two passengers were injured in the accident and 23 others along with four crewmembers were safe.
A Kingfisher Airlines release quoted the commander as saying that the black dog crossed the runway when the aircraft was on a roll. The pilots could not see the animal because the runway was dimly lit. (ANI)
