Three days after 180 passengers on board GoAir flight G8-811D from Nagpur to Bengaluru experienced a close shave with disaster, fresh details about the incident have emerged. According to a Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) note accessed by NDTV, the plane - an Airbus A320 - not only touched down on a grassy and muddy strip to the left of the runway at Bengaluru but one of its engines stalled as it managed to climb out. With only one fully operational engine, the plane was then diverted to Hyderabad airport, which was more than 500 kilometres away.
