Video of passengers and staff pushing plane off runway goes viral

(MENAFN- BreezyScroll)

A large group of passengers and security officials were filmed in a video pushing an aeroplane off a runway in Nepal, which was an unusual sight. According to Nepal News, the incident occurred at the Bajura Airport in Kolti, where a Tara Air plane was left stranded on the airstrip after a tyre burst.

When the plane's rear tyre burst, it was about to land at the airport. Even though the pilot was able to safely land the aircraft, he was unable to move it off the runway. The incident caused airport delays because another plane flying overhead was unable to land due to the stranded aircraft blocking the taxiway. That's when passengers and airport personnel stepped in. At least 20 people were seen pushing the plane off the runway in a video shared on Twitter.

The 25-second video has nearly 50,000 views, 700 likes, and 100 quote retweets
The 25-second video has nearly 50,000 views, 700 likes, and 100 quote retweets. It has also gone viral on Facebook and Instagram. Tara Air's parent company, Yeti Airlines , stated in a statement that the Tara Air 9N-AVE was stranded due to a tyre burst. Passengers and airport personnel offered assistance because there was no infrastructure on the runway to drag the plane. In a separate incident, two Italian pilots successfully landed a Boeing 737-800 despite having nearly their entire windscreen covered with dead birds.

On November 24, the Malta Air Boeing 737-800 was flying between London and Bologna. When it was hit by a massive flock of herons during the landing process. The birds collided with the front of the plane. Their guts were spread across the front windscreen as the landing procedure began. Birds that did not collide with the windshield were sucked into the plane's engines and wings. A short video clip circulated on the internet. It shows sparks flying out of an engine as the plane approaches Bologna Airport. Fortunately for everyone on board, the pilots were experienced enough to land safely.
