    A-I flight makes ‘emergency landing’ in Salalah

    MUSCAT: Budget airline plane from India reportedly made an emergency landing at Salalah airport yesterday morning due to technical snag.

    The Air India (A-I) Express flight from the south Indian state of Kerala, with nearly 150 passengers on board, made ‘emergency landing’ at one end of the runways and was towed to the remote bay.

    The passengers were later transported from the remote bay to the terminal. The flight, which was scheduled to return to India yesterday itself at 12:50pm, has been cancelled.

    One of the passengers travelling in the aircraft told Times of Oman that the ACs were switched off an hour before the emergency landing and an announcement was made that the plane was going to make a “risky landing”.

    An Air India official in Oman confirmed that some technical problems had occurred to the flight.

    SAS-plane strikes Iberia on Ground in Mallorca Spain

    SAS-fly ramte andet fly i spansk lufthavn

    SAS-fly og spansk fly strejfede hinanden på landjorden på Mallorca. Ingen kom noget til.

    Ingen kom noget til, da et SAS-fly ved 13-tiden lørdag kolliderede med et andet fly i lufthavnen på Mallorca, rapporterer svenske medier.
    Uheldet skete, da flyet, som skulle til Arlanda-lufthavnen uden for Stockholm, strejfede et andet fly, da det var på vej ud til startbanen fra terminalbygningen lørdag.
    De 178 passagerer om bord måtte evakuere Boing 737'en og var fortsat på Mallorca søndag formiddag.
    Passager: Ubehageligt

    'Flames' as Air New Zealand plane lands

    An Air New Zealand plane arriving in Auckland was forced to shut down one engine as it prepared to land, with reports of a loud bang and flames.
    One witness told 3News the Boeing 747 was about 400 metres in the air when there was a loud bang and flames shot from the outer starboard engine as it arrived from Sydney last night.
    An unusual bang and a repetitive thumping noise were also heard in the cabin.
    An Air New Zealand spokeswoman said the shut down was the result of a "technical issue".
    "Prior to landing, the pilots experienced a power surge in one of the four engines and as per standard procedure shut down the engine involved.
    "No local standby was required, the aircraft landed without incident and is being inspected by engineers."

    Plane grazes another, delays flight in NAIA

    MANILA, Philippines - Flights were somewhat delayed at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport on Wednesday morning after the left wingtip of a Qatar Airways plane grazed that of a Delta Air.
    The Media Affairs Division said a tug operator miscalculated the distance between the 2 planes.
    The Qatar Airways aircraft, an Airbus Industrie A330, was pushing back for departure at around 12:40 a.m. when its left winglet scraped that of Delta’s Boeing 747-400.
    There were only minor scratches but the Qatar plane’s pilot decided to go back to the terminal. He also had the passengers disembark.
    After an extensive check, the A330 was given the go signal to take off around 5:01 a.m.
    Repairs are also being done on the Boeing 747-400. Its flight was cancelled just the same because of a typhoon battering Japan, where it was scheduled to land.

    A Qantas plane

    PERTH, Australia: A Qantas flight landed safely in Perth on Friday after being hit by a flock of birds, with the airline denying witness reports that flames shot out of one of its engines.
    Qantas said the Melbourne-bound Airbus A330 carrying 273 passengers and crew took off from Perth at 11:50am, only to turn back shortly afterward and land without incident at the same airport at 12:41pm.
    "It was a flock of birds. Normal air turn back. Normal landing," a Qantas spokeswoman told AFP, adding there was "no fire, zero flames".
    "They just did a standard turn back," she said, adding that the plane would be assessed for any damage.
    Perth residents said they heard strange noises as the plane flew overhead.
    "It was making a different noise to what other aircraft make and it sounded like a Russian tank," one witness told Fairfax Radio.
    "I looked up and as I looked up there was a big flame shooting out the back."
