A prominent Television channel belonging to a large group today startled Mangaloreans by airing a terrible “news” of the IX 811 Mangalore Dubai Air India flight catching fire in Bajpe airport.¬† But the airport authorities clarified that the said flight had a technical snag due to which the flight was delayed by 20 minutes.

The TV channel quoted the airport officials stating that there was fire and the fire dousing operations were still on even as the said aircraft had landed in Dubai at 11.40 pm (India time) after departing Bajpe at 8.40pm. The channel however closed the story after airing one more item saying that it was a hoax call.

The ATC sources confirmed to Mangalorean.com that there was no call by anybody saying that there was fire, but the pilot had reported a minor technical snag in the aircraft and the engineers had rectified it in some time and the aircraft was cleared to take off by the ATC.

The channel’s “News” had woken the entire town from the weekend mood and all media houses and offices got copious calls from the concerned people and from the relatives who were on the plane. The newshounds of various channels and newspapers also rushed to the airport and even the police, the district administration officials and fire tenders were on alert.

Speaking to Mangalorean.com Airport General Manager Mr. M.R. Vasudeva told that there was no incident in the airport today and all the flights had operated normally from Bajpe airport except for the minor technical snag on IX 811.
