SpiceJet statement :

"On 29th April 2019, SpiceJet B737-800 aircraft operated SG 946 from Delhi to Shirdi.

While landing at Shirdi, the aircraft overshot the runway. Passengers and crew are safe and are being deplaned normally."

They clearly lucked out with the landing gears not collapsing. How long would an aircraft in such an incident like this be out of service? It's still flyable, but I imagine they must examine the tires and landing gears in some way to ensure they weren't damaged or compromised.

Also it depends on how much the engines inhaled. The aircraft looks to have avoided major damage but it could still be a week or more before its back one would guess.

There is an airstair approaching the plane. Makes sense that they deactivated the slide before opening the door.

The runway looks so parched and dry. If they touched down at the right spot, I wonder what could be any other reason for them to overshoot.

Landing with a tailwind albeit only 6KN is usually a bad idea especially on a clear day and you don't need too.

If you look at the replay on FR24 they arrived at the Airport at 5,000 ft AGL and had to do a circling approach to 09. Other Flights beforehand landed the opposite way on runway 27. Right after on 09 an ATR landed - but I assume they let them land downwind as they didn't want them crossing over 737 at the far end of the Runway and the ATR would not have needed much of the 8,200' Runway.

Interestingly - they are in the process of extending the runway to 10,500' which was supposed to be it's length by now but they are behind schedule.

8,200' would have been more than enough if they landed in the right direction for the conditions.

I think there is some confusion on the Flight number - FR24 has it as SG946

This is almost sad and gross neglect for safety.

Apparently the aircraft was supposed to go to South Korea's T'Way, but they did not take it up. Hence the weird livery.

700% true. Put together all the aircraft with white tails and fuselages as well as those in a partial Travel Service Moravian-Silesian livery or a T’way Air livery as you see here, and you have an airline that tries its level best to slash painting costs.

It is no coincidence that, of the measly 300 pictures of SpiceJet in the A.net database, at least 10% are taken at Prague Václav Havel Airport.




For comparison, not a single IndiGo aircraft is painted in any livery other than the standard livery, which is also tied to the fact that 6E has never had a special livery.

In grieving remembrance of the thousands of people who lost their lives on ET-AVJ, PK-LQP, XA-UHZ, S2-AGU, CP-2933, SU-GCC, EI-ETJ, D-AIPX, PK-AXC, 9M-MRD, VT-AXV and above all 9M-MRO, besides many more. Your deaths are not in vain. Safety first, always.

They don't invest in their interiors either, it can be really old and worn out, and even have other airline's branding. But then people get what they pay for...its one of cheapest fares always

In an earlier pic you can see a proper airstair being towed across to the plane and then in the next pic you see the maintenance stairs being actually used....before jumping to conclusions about "gross neglect", I would stop and wonder if there was some problem getting the regular airstairs in place and in order to evacuate the passengers, they quickly used the maintenance stairs.....

OMG, this is horrendous. Can't they do a bit better with branding??
