In such a situation in the interest of domestic and international fliers shouldn’t we create a separate airport for very important people

The Hyderabad-bound IndiGo flight on Sunday night here was delayed by almost three hours due to an encounter with a wild boar which strayed onto the runway in the darkness.

There have been reports of wild boars straying onto the airport in night's darkness for some time and they came true on Sunday. Once the plane landed, it was thoroughly inspected and cleaned before it finally took off again. In what can be termed a miraculous escape, the disaster was averted after a wild boar hit the flight mid-takeoff. The crew realized there was a problem when the rear wheels failed to lift while takeoff.

After the incident the crew informed the Air Traffic Controller (ATC) and the carcass was cleared from the runway letting the way for the flight to touch down. "After runway inspection, the pilot carried out a precautionary landing at Vizag airport after 45 minutes for necessary inspection". "The technical team found that the flesh of the wild boar was stuck to the rear wheel of the aircraft, hindering its free rotation".

The Gurgaon-based airline said it has raised the issue of birds and wildlife endangering the safety of the passengers as well as the flight operations with the Visakhapatnam airport authorities.

The Visakhapatnam-Hyderabad flight, which took off at 10.30 p.m., came back to the runway. Speaking to a newspaper, Air Travellers Association (ATA) president D Varada Reddy said it was surprising how a wild boar entered the airport, which is fortified with a wall. "We have requested them to undertake the cleaning works near the runway area to prevent the repeat of such incidents", airport director said.
