Panic at Kenya airport as AI plane blocks runway

There was panic at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport Monday night when an Air India plane developed mechanical problems and blocked the runway for several hours.
The aircraft which was destined for Mumbai was taking off when one of its engines failed, prompting the pilot to apply emergency brakes bursting all its eight tyres.
It had 131 passengers and seven crew members on board and all of them had to use the emergency door when leaving the plane.
Kenya Airports Police Unit CID chief Judy Ndeda says the matter is under investigation by the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority Aircraft accident Inspectors.
