Passenger craft makes harsh landing

Captain Salaluddin on the commercial flight (Airbus 8321) announced: “Sorry for the harsh landing ladies and gentlemen, I was training my under officer (Gaurav), he will get the hang of it soon.”

A senior IPS officer who was in the aircraft told Deccan Herald: “One could realise that the pilot was flying low and even the approach for landing was wrong. Finally, the pilot lost control of the aircraft and did a very harsh landing.”

He added that the flight was fairly full and it even had some State politicians on board.
The flight departed from Delhi at 6.20 pm and landed in Bangalore at about 8.25 pm.
Kingfisher Airlines spokesperson Prakash Merpuri, speaking from Mumbai,  said: “The matter has not come to my notice yet. But we will investigate into it.”
