The plane, with 136 passengers and crew members on-board, continued for Dubai and was eventually diverted to Mumbai after Trichy airport officials reported to the pilots that the aircraft might have come in contact with a wall.

The passengers were shifted to another aircraft at Mumbai to travel to Dubai.

The plane rushed down the Trichy airport runway at a speed of 250-290 km per hour and nicked the boundary wall before it was up in the air. DGCA officers are at site for preliminary inquiry and Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau officers have also been deputed, he said.

The Red Sox scored first both nights in Yankee Stadium and will now play in the ALCS for the 11th time in franchise history. Zach Britton gave up an opposite-field homer to No. 9 batter Christian Vazquez in the fourth, and NY never fully recovered.

A similar incident was reported two days back, on October 10, when an Air India flight, which took off from Delhi with 190 people on board, suffered a hydraulic leak before landing at New York's JFK Airport on Wednesday. The pilots, were reportedly unaware of the damage and reported that all systems were functioning normally.

However, Dubai airport officials refused to allow the plane to land under the presumption that it was risky to allow it as the tyre had been slightly damaged, throwing the passengers on board into another round of anxiety. Following this, however, the flight was diverted to Mumbai where it landed safely.

The pilot in command has 3,600 hours of flying experience on the Boeing 737, including 500 hours as a commander and the first officer has about 3000 hours of experience on the Boeing 737.
