A shape-shifting ghost has been spotted on the runway at BLR. Occasionally appearing in a white saree or as a headless body, it is alleged that a couple of flights have had to abort landings. There have been no moves to fly in 'ghostbusters' from Delhi.

Anybody else flying into BLR seen this apparition or have suggestions? Does this happen at other airports too?

I just landed there 2 days ago and took off there about 12 hours ago, both in the dark and I didn't see a ghost, only some dogs were running around on the apron - that's all  Wink

Airports? Nope.

Jungles? Yes.

Was BLR built on some burial ground?

Are you sure they weren't werewolves  Wink

Cremation is the preferred exit strategy out there, unless an ancient burial ground was disturbed.

The only aviation related ghosts I can think of were the deadheading crew from Eastern 401...

She is waiting for her silver Ghostliner to land at the stroke of midnight to take her away...  tombstone

More likely to be a disgruntled flier upset about commuting 2 hours to take a flight to Chennai or Hyderabad.

Ha ha! You're right. It could also be part of a secret PR effort to re-open the old HAL airport.

Anything to get the airport to shift back to HAL....Guess the staff are finding the added commute tough.

I think we have sleep deprived staff. When are the roads/rail expected to be completed to the new BLR?

Are they sure that airplane-coffee is still good?


Nothing's worse then flying the same registration twice, except flying it 4 times..

LHR had it's share of sightings of WWII airmen on the runway too by the tower controllers. None of the sightings were reported in recent times though.

Pure BS I'm sure, but it's being covered by most of the local dailies - which excel in sensationalistic stories of dubious origins  Smile

I've been there spotting a few times, but pity completely missed the ghost  Sad. Does she prefer the 09 or the 27 end for her landings  Wink?
