Team probes heavy landing at Sonari airport

Jamshedpur: A two-member Air Safety team from the director-general of civil aviation (DGCA) today inspected the Air King C-90 that suffered a heavy landing here at the Sonari airport last evening.
The aircraft, which was coming from Calcutta, skidded off the runway allegedly due to inclement weather.
According to sources, the team members inspected the six-seater aircraft and the probable reasons that could have resulted in its heavy landing, which left five of its occupants with minor injuries.
Vice-president (flat products) of Tata Steel, Anand Sen, and managing director of Tinplate Company of India Limited, B.L. Raina, were also in the aircraft.
Sources said security was beefed up at the airport but because of the debris on the runway, no flight could take off or land there today.
