Air India Flight 'Tail-Tips' On Landing In Kozhikode, All Passengers Safe

Air India flight from Dammam suffers a "tail tip" after landing in Kozhikode

Kozhikode:

An Air India flight from Dammam, Saudi Arabia had a close shave as it had a "tail tip" after landing in Kozhikode this morning.

Air India Express IX 382 from Dammam to Kozhikode flight suffered ''tail tip'' as its tail touched down the runway during landing.

All 180 passengers on board were safe and no damage to aircraft was reported.

"Tail tip" is when the rear part of a plane touches the surface during landing due to a weight imbalance towards the back of the aircraft. 

One of the common prevention strategies is to have all the aisle seats filled to give the flight a better centre of gravity and provide the aircraft balance.
