Several Persons Dead In Air India Plane Crash.(See Photos)

At least 18 people, including both the pilots were killed after an Air India Express plane with 190 on board from Dubai skidded off the runway and broke in two while landing at Kerala’s Kozhikode on Friday amid heavy rain.

All on board were evacuated after a nearly three-hour operation and at least 112 injured were taken to hospitals in Kozhikode and Malappuram districts, authorities said.

India’s Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri on Saturday said that the precise cause of Kozhikode plane crash can be determined only after data analysis of the black boxes recovered from the aircraft.

There were 174 passengers, 10 Infants, two pilots and four cabin crew members on board the aircraft.

The flight was part of the Indian Vande Bharat programme that has been bringing back Indians from abroad amid the coronavirus pandemic.
