Kolkata Bound Flight Returns After Technical Glitch


Guwahati: A Kolkata-bound Air India flight returned to the Lokapriya Gopinath Bordoli International Airport (LGBI) minutes after it was airborne after a technical snag was reported mid-air.

An army officer on board the flight AI 730 told this to IANS on Sunday, adding that the flight took off around 11.45am from the LGBI airport of Guwahati.

“However, minutes after the take-off, the pilot announced that they are taking the plane back to LGBI as they have detected a fault in the landing gear of the plane,” he said.

There was, however, not much panic and the plane landed smoothly at the airport, the officer said.
