Watch: Air ambulance en route Hyderabad makes emergency landing after wheel falls off

  • | Friday | 7th May, 2021

An air ambulance going from Nagpur to Hyderabad made a safe crash (belly) landing in Mumbai around 9.10 pm on Thursday night. All 5 occupants including the crew of the aircraft are safe. The plane was diverted from Hyderabad to Mumbai after the landing gear failed.

Actually, the aircraft going from Nagpur to Hyderabad without permission had to divert towards Mumbai in an emergency. According to media reports, an air ambulance, which was flying from Nagpur to Hyderabad with a patient and a doctor without permission, was damaged when one of the aircraft`s wheel was damaged, after which it was hurriedly diverted to the Mumbai route. According to the latest information, this aircraft has successfully landed in Mumbai. Thankfully the patients, doctors and crew are safe.

According to the information, as soon as the plane took off from Nagpur airport, the pilot realised some technical problem; he figured that a wheel fell off the plane to the ground during the plane`s takeoff from Nagpur. The pilot, who was in a hurry, displayed unshakable acumen and decided to do a belly landing which averted a major accident.

A lot of foam was laid on the runway before landing. This reduces the risk of fire in the plane.

What is belly landing?

Belly landing or gear-up landing occurs when an aircraft lands without its landing gear and uses its underside, or bailey, as the main landing device. Usually, the gear-up landing term is used when the pilot forgets to extend the landing gear, while the belly landing is associated with a situation where the pilot is unable to extend the landing gear due to a technical fault.
