Srinagar Airport goes to dogs

Srinagar: A Spicejet flight on Srinagar International Airport got delayed by at least one hour and fourty minutes as on the runway a stray dog hampered its takeoff, Monday.

Sources said that Spicejet flight SG939 was to takeoff at 12.35 PM and as the plane started moving on the runway, it hit a dog, that was roaming there mysteriously.

“We don’t know what exactly happened. But as the aircraft started moving on the runway, it came to a halt with a sudden jerk, panicking all on the board,” said a passenger, Basharat.

“We came to know that a stray dog had come in the way, however, we were not told by the crew that whether the dog was hit or not,” added Basharat.

However, some other passengers said that the jolt was so big that they were convinced that the aircraft over ran the stray dog.

“The very simple logic. The flight had to take off at 12.35. It finally took off at 2.15. Means, there was some big trouble. I think, they changed the front tyre of the plane, which may have been damaged,” said another passenger.

However, no one from the Airports Authority of India (AAI) came out with any explanation.
