Air India plane lands with wing on fire

Five passengers were slightly injured following a mid-air fire as an Air India jet touched down at Delhi airport.

The left wing of flight AI-405 caught fire on approach at Indira Gandhi Airport.

A leak in the hydraulic system was cited as the cause and the airport was put in full emergency evacuation mode with fire crew and medical teams waiting on the tarmac.

All 153 people onboard were evacuated safely but five were treated for minor injuries.

British author and broadcaster William Dalrymple, who was onboard, said the airline knew there was a problem even before the plane took off from Khajuraho.
