Vasco: An alert ground level staff averted a major tragedy of SpiceJet Aircraft at Goa airport on Tuesday morning after the nose landing gear was not deployed, Indian Navy said here.

In a press statement issued here, Naval spokesman said that an alert Runway Controller and Air Traffic Control Officer at Naval Air Station INS Hansa averted a major accident of Spicejet Flight SG 3568 on December 17.

“The Spicejet Flight was on final approach for landing at Goa International Airport when the Runway Controller Ramesh Tigga, Leading Airman (Air Handler) noticed that the nose landing gear was not deployed,” he said.

“The Runway Controller immediately alerted the ATC tower where the Duty Air Traffic Controller, Lt Cdr Harmeet Kaur informed the incoming aircraft to abort the landing and make a second attempt after a ‘go-around’,” the spokesman added.
“The second attempt too proved unsuccessful and the front landing gear was partially deployed only on the third attempt. The flight landed safely at 0805 hrs under assistance of emergency and safety services to recover the aircraft,” the Indian Navy said.

“The alert action of Naval Air Traffic and Safety Services prevented the Spicejet flight and all its passengers from a major accident at Goa airfield,” the spokesman added.
