SpiceJet Q400 Hits Wild Boars On RWY At Jabalpur

Fri Dec 04, 2015 4:15 pm

Earlier tonight it appears a Spicejet Q400 hit a pack of boars that had strayed onto the runway, causing the aircraft to veer off into soft ground. All pax evacuated safely.

A few years ago, while landing at ORD in a United flight, I heard in Ch.9 the tower telling our captain to watch out for "hogs" on the runway. So this is not unique to India, it seems.

During my flight training I almost hit more than my fair share of coyotes and deer.

That being said, are there any better pictures of the plane in the aftermath?

Oh they just might, if you hit them hard enough.

Wild boar can easily dig a tunnel under the airport fence. Happenes here as well. The airport I'm working on has two licenced hunters (one is also a falconeer) as wildlife control officers. Should bigger animals find a way airside, they will come with their rifles or shotguns and shoot it. They have a special airside pass, which allows them to bring hunting weapons airside.

In my 49 years of air travel, I have only been on two flights that had to execute a go around. One of the times was coming in to Anchorage on a Northwest flight from Tokyo. We had to go around because of two moose on the runway. The airport sent a truck out to run them off. It was daylight and the tower spotted the animals.

Got to check my records, but I think I saw it in Malta on it's delivery flight in 2011.

Hopefully it will get to fly again.

VAJB runway is too short for a fully loaded pig  


I'm not surprised this happened. Dogs, pigs and cows are fairly common there. Our flight school used to have guys fly cross country to small airfields in that part of the country, and often the standard procedure involved a low flight over the runway to chase the animals away before coming in to land (albeit not at controlled aerodromes like VAJB). The last time I flew into that airport, there were tall grasses all around the place, with the tiny terminal and tinier tower just barely visible on approach. We used to joke that the VOR there is bigger than the terminal.

Seems like the left main gear collapsed when running into one or more of these boars... as no one got hurt, funny story... ^^

Reminds me of a few years back during an Outback air ralley raising money for the Royal Flying Doctor, we had to move sheep off the landing strip before the planes came in.

After the event was over and all the aircraft had departed we let the sheep back on. They helped stop the bush encroaching on the strip.

Recall a time some years ago at SYD when a REX flight was due in from country NSW.
A fox was running around 16L/34R and an airside security veh had been despatched to round it up.

Tower requested REX123 to go around, REX123 replied with typically laconic Aussie bravado, "we're from the bush we can handle foxes"
An even more laconic reply from the tower, "REX123, fine, how do you feel about Nissan Patrols?"

Meanwhile AS got a bit luckier today when they killed a deer with one of their 737s.

Back in 1981 I was making a night landing at Plymouth, Indiana airport in a Cheyenne II a deer ran onto the runway. My boss
yelled "Lookout". On inspection after parking there were scratch marks on the starboard underwing and tail feathers. The boss
went and changed his underwear.

My dad and brother hit a deer in some twin prop charter aircraft in Canada on a dirt runway that had a turn in it. Upon inspecting the incident, Canadian officials found the aircraft wa carrying twice the limit of caught fish (bags were in the other aircraft). The pilot was fined for the illegal cargo.

Edit: The deer ran straight into prop #2 with deadly result for the deer, damaging some engine and gear parts.

If the plane and its occupants are OK, why should we care about the bores?

Well, bores are terrible things, they sit next to you on airplanes and talk absolute rubbish about really boring subjects.
Now boars can be cute and are great on BBQ's with a side of beans.

There must be a tandoori oven lying about the terminal. Would make a savory boar kebab to go with the naan!    ...

Further to that, any photo of the boars at all? The link merely said "No untoward incident was reported" -- except for the boars maybe?

Boar curry could be tantalizing too!
