Air India Flies Into Mid-Air Fuel Crisis With Landing Gear Still Down

Размещено
 
Pilots of an Air India flight forgot to retract the aircraft wheel assembly after taking off from Kolkata on Saturday and realised it only half way through the journey to Mumbai when they were forced to land in Nagpur. With the landing gear down, the A320 aircraft guzzled fuel faster and a low fuel situation forced the pilots to divert. Both pilots have been de-rostered by the carrier.

Isn't there a master caution alert for that? Also, fuel checks?

Plane nearly ran out of fuel after pilots forgot to bring up landing gear

Two pilots have been suspended from duty after their aircraft, carrying 99 passengers, nearly ran out of fuel because they forgot to retract the landing gear after take-off.

Air India Flight AI676 was en route to Mumbai from Kolkata on July 22 but was forced to divert to Nagpur when the crew became alarmed by the speed at which the aircraft was losing fuel thanks to the additional drag created by the extended wheels.
