SpiceJet cargo plane flying to China returned to Kolkata yesterday after weather radar failure: Sources

According to Spicejet freighter aircraft, which was heading to Chongqing in China returned to Kolkata on Tuesday as the pilots realized after take-off that its weather radar was not working. But it was learned that after repairing the faulty unit, the flight took off again. This is at least the eighth incident of technical malfunction happening on Spicejet aircraft in the last 18 days. But this is one of the three incidents that are related to a malfunction in a day.

The private air carrier has seen reported incidents of malfunctions in the last three weeks counting today’s incident. But it was reported that it has not caused any harm to the passengers or crews. There have been several such incidents happening lately. Another such incident that happened yesterday, was when a flight from Delhi to Dubai had to make an unexpected landing at the airport in Karachi, Pakistan after its fuel indicator went wrong. Pilots doubted that it might be a fuel leak and opted to make an unscheduled landing to be safe. Those 138 passengers had to take an alternative flight that have been sent from India after nearly they waited for 11 hours. Earlier on 2nd July, a SpiceJet aircraft operating from Delhi airport to Jabalpur returned safely to the Delhi airport after the crew noticed smoke in the cabin while passing 5000ft.
