Stray dogs on runway force Air India flight to abort landing at Goa airport


A pack of stray dogs on the runway of the Goa airport forced an Air India aircraft from Mumbai to abort landing and make a go-around early Tuesday, the Indian Navy which controls the air traffic at the airport said.

Despite the close shave, no one was injured in the incident that occurred at 3 am.

“AI 033 from Mumbai while landing in Dabolim at around 0300h on 13 Aug 19 reported to ATC dogs on runway and going around. The aircraft was recovered safely in second approach,” the Navy said in a statement.

The air traffic and runway controllers missed the presence of the dogs and gave the plane a go ahead for landing “since it was night,” the statement revealed. Read More
