Some..er..interesting media reporting !!

"Since the aircraft was invisible on the radar, the air traffic controllers relied on navigation equipment — en route viewer and automatic dependent surveillance (a special communicating system) — to help the aircraft land."

What the heck are they talking about ??  Confused

Can an aircraft go off the radar during bad weather?

That's the problem. This sounds like it was written by a science fiction writer. The media ALWAYS goes for the sensational or mysterious slant totally ignoring facts. Most of us can look at this psycho-babble and see it for what it is BUT some non-aviation travelers believe it and it scares the daylights out of them. How irresponsible. That's not even funny.

that was probably due to the systems failure at CCU. few days back the systems at the ATC had crashed... since CCU does not have backup (unlike BOM/DEL) the repair had to take time. So, I guess it was due to this that the report says that the a/c was not on the radar.

Journalism, amazes you every time  bomb 

As Guru mentioned, there was some radar equipment at CCU that hasn’t been fully operational for a few days, I think that’s what they are referring too. I doubt the weather had anything to do with it.

A passenger heard a loud bang and felt the AC was freefalling? id like to know what he was on!!

I think I want to become a journalist myself! What a great piece of writing. It's amazing, these people have such a talent that when a flight runs out of coffee they can make it sound like the a/c and pax just narrowly escaped certain death! Truly remarkable!
