Pilot aborts take-off after flight suffers engine stall in northern India
A horrific visual has emerged of a flight suffering engine stall resulting in aborting takeoff in northern India’s Delhi.
The incident took place at Indira Gandhi International Airport on October 28.
Visuals showed fire in one of the engines of the plane. Continuous sparks were seen coming out of it. The flight that was about to take off suddenly stopped.
According to reports, an IndiGo flight 6E-2131 from Delhi to Bangalore was grounded at the Delhi airport on Friday after one of the engines caught fire.
The pilot decided to abort the takeoff after the plane suffered a technical malfunction on the runway just ahead of the takeoff.
While the initial report stated that the plane was grounded due to a suspected spark in the aircraft, IndiGo later stated that the engine stalled during the takeoff roll and hence returned to the bay.
“An aircraft operating flight 6E-2131 (Delhi-Bangalore) experienced a technical issue while on take-off roll, immediately after which the pilot aborted the takeoff & aircraft returned to the bay. All passengers & crew are safe & an alternate aircraft is being arranged,” said IndiGo.
