A Vistara Airlines flight from Delhi to Bhubaneshwar suffered a major scare on Monday after its hydraulic system failed shortly after taking off from the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport.
The A320 aircraft UK-781 was involved in an air turn back after taking off as it developed as the green hydraulic system low ecam turned on in the cockpit.
Aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) is probing the incident. The plane landed safely back in Delhi with 140 passengers on board.
Previous Incident on Same Flight
This is the second major incident involving the same flight in less than two months after it was forced to make an emergency landing at Varanasi Airport after a flyer fell ill mid-air.
A patient named DD Meher reportedly suffered a cardiac arrest on board the flight and it was diverted to Varanasi due to the medical emergency.
