India and Australia players in flight scare


The Indian and Australian teams survived a scare after their flight made an emergency landing.

The Jet Airways flight from Nagpur to Mumbai took off at 9.40 am local time but had to make a precautionary return to Nagpur ten minutes into the air after a bird hit the plane. The flight safely landed in Nagpur.

“It’s not a big issue and no one panicked as a plane being hit by a bird is a common phenomenon and the pilot decided to land again for a technical check-up,” an official said.

Emergency vehicles lined the runway for the landing but were not needed. No-one was injured. Passengers remained on board ready to resume the flight after engineers checked the right engine which hit the bird.
