Bird Menace: 5 Flights Kept On Hold At Airport

While bird hits are common during monsoon, the runway at Ahmedabad airport continued to see flights of birds even after a bird-hit incident with a Chandigarh-bound on Thursday morning. The pilot informed the air traffic control and jeeps were run to chase away the birds even as 5-6 flights were kept on hold.

During peak hours on the same day, a Vistara flight, a chartered aircraft and then three other flights came to the runway but one pilot noticed birds on runway and informed the ATC, which sent out a jeep to shoo away the birds. Meanwhile, the chartered flight took off, while the other two aircraft waited their turn.

On Thursday, a Go-First flight to Chandigarh with 100 passengers made an emergency landing due to a bird-hit, minutes after take-off.
