Hi,
Any information on this photo as to why an AI - A321 had landed in Budapest ? My guess was that it was being delivered from Toulouse. But then why did it land in Budapest ? Or was it some technical fault ?
Please share if anyone has any information regarding this.

The picture information says that it was an unscheduled landing -- which implies some kind of in-flight incident -- perhaps a medical diversion.


I'm tired of the A vs. B sniping. Neither make planes that shed wings randomly!

= I find the current Air India livery to be extremely striking and one of the classiest good looking colors out there at this moment.

Cheers,

One of the flight crew had a probable heart attack in-flight so they had to divert. Unfortunately he couldn't be resuscitated on the ground and he died.

RIP to the crew member, tragic that VT-PPI's maiden flight for AI had such an incident

It seems AI have ditched the four wheel bogie Landing Gear on their Airbus Single Aisle aircraft. I guess the airport facilities (runways, taxiways) have improved in the years since they got their A320s.

That was IC (Indian Airlines), not AI. I think the runways that originally required the special four-wheel gear on the A320 have been improved over the years and they reverted to the standard two-wheel gear on later deliveries.

Post merger.The Airline is now AI.

The Four wheeled bogie gear manufacturer closed shop & the improvements to runways out here did not warrant its use.Thereafter only The two wheel MLG was used.

Quoting HAWK21M (Reply 12):
Thereafter only The two wheel MLG was used.

The original IC order was for 31 A320s which came in two batches of 19 and 12. These are the VT-EPB - PT series and the VT-ESA - SL series. All of these aircraft had the 4 wheel bogies. While VT-EPN crashed in BLR on Valentine's day, 1990, all the 30 others from the original order continue to fly for AI. All AI (IC) A320s that you currently see with twin wheel MLG are leased. These are registered VT-EV... and VT-EY...

Hope that clarifies.
