Delhi-bound IndiGo flight catches fire

A Goa to Delhi IndiGo flight returned to Goa Airport on Sunday after a technical glitch was detected on the flight. The IndiGo flight 6e-336 landed at the Dabolim Airport after 15 minutes of take-off. 

According to some media reports, the left engine of the IndiGo flight had caught fire mid-air. 

All passengers on board were reported to be safe. 

Earlier this month, aviation regulator DGCA had suspended two IndiGo pilots for two months for flying a Hyderabad-Vijaywada flight on July 24 with the tail support attached. 

According to an official, they were informed about it by the Air Traffic Control (ATC) immediately after take-off.

During loading or unloading of any kind of cargo in an aircraft, the tail support or 'tail prop' is used to prevent the plane from tipping over backwards.
