Goa Airport Reopens after Fuel Spill from MiG-29K Tank Causes Fire on Main Runway
By News18 09-Jun-2019
The airport reopened after an hour, the spokesperson confirmed.
A portion of the main runway of the airport caught fire after a drop tank of a MiG-29K aircraft fell down from the jet while it was taking off, Navy spokesperson Captain DK Sharma said. This led to minor damages to the landing and take-off strip.
"Due to jettisoned fuel tank on the runway during MiG sortie the operations are closed for two hours at Goa airport. Pl bear with us," Airport Authority of India (AAI) Goa tweeted on its official Twitter handle on Saturday afternoon.
