AI Express plane that grazed Trichy airport wall not overloaded

Air India Express damage wall

An Air India flight attendant was seriously injured after falling off an aircraft, readying to depart India's financial capital Mumbai, as she was closing the door before takeoff.

"The woman crew member was closing the door for pushback when she fell from the aircraft", an unidentified Air India spokesperson told Channel News Asia Monday.

Air India released an official statement confirming the incident: "After flight IX 611 from Trichy to Dubai had taken off from Trichy at about 1:30 a.m. today, it was reported by local airport officials at Trichy that they have observed that the aircraft might have come in contact with the airport perimeter wall".

Air India is now investigating the incident, according to reports.

Harsha Lobo, a senior cabin crew member who was preparing Air India's flight AI-864 for a 7 a.m. departure, sustained multiple fractures and soft tissue injuries including to her lower spine after she tumbled to the apron from the aircraft in a freak accident.

It further added, "She also suffered from a sprain in the neck (cervical spine)".

The air-hostess was later admitted to Mumbai's Nanavati Hospital for treatment. The airline is now looking into whether the incident was caused by a technical snag or pilot error.

In December 2015, a technician working for Air India died after being sucked into a jet engine as the plane pushed back for take-off at Mumbai airport. "Lobo is conscious. She fell down while closing the door of B777 ER at 6.10 am on Monday".

"I will never fly Air India, can not believe this pilot was unaware of the danger he put his crew and passengers in", one Twitter user commented.
