Around 50 passengers aboard a SpiceJet flight had a close shave on Friday after a herd of wild boars marched onto the runway after the plane had landed at Jabalpur, swinging the aircraft off the runway.
The incident, which took place around 7.45pm, left around seven boars dead and SpiceJet’s Q400 aircraft grounded with damage to the its left landing gear and undercarriage.
Sources said the Mumbai-Jabalpur flight was on the “landing roll” when around 30-40 boars marched on to the runway.
“The pilot lost control of the aircraft causing the aircraft to swing off the runway… None of the passengers or crew suffered injuries,” said a SpiceJet official.
