737 Missed Runway, Hopes To Catch A Train
It began on Sunday, when an Air Sahara 737 skidded off the
runway at Mumbai, India, forcing the closure of the strip and
disrupting air traffic there ever since.
Now, it appears the regional railroad will get involved, helping
to move the aircraft back onto the tarmac.
"The Central Railway will help us slide the aircraft in the
runway as they have the requisite equipment," Mumbai airport
manager Shiv Bhagan told the Indo-Asian News Service.
It's the second plan to be considered by airport officials. The
first involved using air bags to lift the aircraft from the desert
floor and, well, roll it onto the runway.
"Two airbags have been kept under the wings and two under the
fuselage and after they are inflated, chains will pull the aircraft
to the runway. The entire operation would be completed by Tuesday
evening," Bhagan said.
