AI plane suffers snag, grounded


The pilot of the Airbus A-320, which flew in from Delhi, detected a leak in its hydraulic system just before taxiing for take-off for Nagpur, an airport official said.

The official maintained that the flight, IC-869, did not land under emergency conditions as the snag was detected when it was on the ground.

The hydraulic leak was detected after the plane landed at the airport at 0730 hrs, delaying its scheduled departure for Nagpur at 0850 hours.

Engineers and spare parts were rushed in by a spare Air India aircraft from Mumbai to fix the leakage, the official said.
