New Delhi, Sep 20 (PTI) The Directorate General for Civil Aviation (DGCA) is probing an incident where an Air India Express flight landed ominously deep on the table top runway in Mangalore.

Officials said that the incident occured on 25 June when an Air India Express flight from Mumbai landed in Mangalore.

They said what followed was a difference of opinion between the pilot and the co pilot while the plane was landing.

The captain decided to take off and land again after circling the airport, but the co-pilot in the nick of time applied the brakes and the aircraft stopped very close to a gorge, sources said.

"There was some problem with the landing of the air craft. Investigation is going on," DGCA chief E K Bharat Bhushan said.

"It is fortunate that no accident occured but if there had been an attempt to move the plane ahead after the brakes had been applied it would have been dangerous," said Capt.
Mohan Ranganathan, air safety expert and member of Civil Aviation Safety Advisory Council.

On May 22, 2010, a Air India Express Flight 812 from Dubai to Mangalore overshot the runway while landing and crashed, killing more than 150 of those who were on board. PTI ADS
