Kozhikode plane accident: Twitteratis recall Mangaluru Air Crash

Mangaluru: As the death toll from the crash of an Air India Express plane that overshot the runway in heavy rain near Kozhikode on August 7 has risen to 19, Twitteratis recalled Mangaluru air crash that took place on May 22, 2010.

Ten years ago on May 22, 2010, Mangaluru too had witnessed one of the country’s worst air crash, an Air India Express flight from Dubai to Mangalore crashed while landing at Mangalore International airport (MIA). A Boeing 737-800, the aircraft, with 166 people on board, overshot the runway and crashed into the valley before bursting into flames. The crash killed 158 people and left eight survivors.

The pilots of that doomed aircraft tried to power-up the plane in an attempt to take-off before running out of tarmac. Unfortunately, the aircraft plunged into a valley below and exploded. Almost similar scenes were witnessed on Friday when a Dubai-Kozhikode flight overshot the runway and fell down a slope. Fortunately enough, the aviation turbine fuel this time did not ignite.

Take a look at a few tweets to know how Twitteratis recalled the MIA crash:
