Mangalore Plane Crash

On 22 May 2010, Air India Express Flight 812, a Boeing 737-800 VT-AXV, flying on the Dubai-Mangalore route, overshot the 8,033 feet (2,448 m) runway number 06/24, killing 158 people, including 6 crew; only 8 survived. The aircraft crashed when it overshot the runway and plunged into a steep gorge at the end of the runway.

The starboard wing impacted the concrete socket of the instrument landing system (ILS) localiser antenna, rendering it unusable.This resulted in delayed or cancelled flights for two weeks during the monsoon rains, which reduced visibility.It took the airport a little under a month to repair and calibrate the ILS and bring it back online.

While there were no fatalities, the aircraft was damaged beyond repair and was written off. One of the passengers was Veerappa Moily, then Finance Minister of Karnataka.

An investigation revealed numerous pilot-attributed errors: the aircraft’s flaps had not been set to landing position, the aircraft had landed long on the downsloping runway, at excessive speed and with a tailwind. The aircraft involved was HAL 748 VT-DXF, with manufacturer’s serial number 511; it first flew in 1967.
