Vistara Airplane Crash Averted At Delhi Airport

Big news coming in, a major mishap at Delhi airport was averted on Wednesday morning after two Vistara aircrafts were given permissions, one to take-off while another was in process of landing. The take off was luckily aborted after instructions from the ATC. Vistara flight UK 725 from Delhi to Bagdogra was taking off from the newly inaugurated runway at Delhi airport and the Vistara flight from Ahmedabad to Delhi, was moving towards the end of the runway after landing on a parallel runway. Vistara aircraft from Ahmedabad to Delhi, which landed on runway 29L, was asked by the ATC to cross runway 29R. The Vistara flight from Delhi to Bagdogra was asked to take off from runway 29R at the same time. Both the Vistara aircraft were given permission at the same time but the Air Traffic Control took control immediately. The ATC officer on duty asked Vistara flight to abort take-off. A major accident could have happened if the flight taking off was not stopped by the Air Traffic Control. According to Standard Operation Procedure, no aircraft or vehicle movement is allowed during the process of take-off and landing. The pilot on the Ahmedabad-Delhi flight realised that there was some mix-up and communicated it to the ATC, after which the error was realised and the take-off permission for the Delhi-Bagdogra aircraft was withdrawn. The Delhi-Bagdogra flight returned to the parking bay from the active runway immediately after take-off was aborted. It was refuelled to ensure that the plane had enough fuel to return to Delhi if the pilot encountered bad weather conditions at Bagdogra. The braking system of the aircraft was also checked. In a statement to the media, the airport officials stated, if the flight taking off was not stopped at the right time, a major accident could have happened. The passengers in the Vistara aircraft UK 725 from Delhi to Bagdogra became a little apprehensive when the pilot of the flight announced that the plane would not take off due to instructions from Air Traffic Control. A take-off clearance is not issued to an aircraft on one runway unless the aircraft on the second runway has landed. However, if the aircraft is permitted to take off from one runway and the aircraft approaching on the second runway decides to abort the landing, the flight path of the two aircraft in the air may come in conflict since the runway they were aligned to are closely spaced.
