Aviation - Air Crash
Sunday, 23 May 2010 16:55
 
An Air India Express Boeing 737-800 from Dubai to Mangalore in India overshot the runway while attempting to land and crashed into a wooded valley on Saturday, 22nd May 2010.

Initial reports indicate the aircraft hit the airport fence while attempting a go-around.

The plane was carrying 166 passengers and six crew members. Village residents have rescued eight passengers and they have been rushed to the hospitals.

Mangalore airport is plagued by hilly terrain and the airport has a table top runway. More details from the three Youtube videos below…
