A Delhi-Ranchi IndiGo trip with 190 individuals on board endured a mid-air motor obstacle on Sunday and came back to the national capital, flagging the arrival of issues with Pratt and Whitney (P&W) motors that power the carrier’s Airbus A320 Neo (new motor alternative) planes.
The flight, 6E-509, needed to pivot mid-air on Sunday evening after the pilots distinguished an obstacle in one of the motors and passed on the news to the Delhi ATC, said an airplane terminal authority on the state of secrecy.
Information from flight following site flightradar24 demonstrated the flying machine taking a u-turn above Aligarh in UP before starting its drop back in Delhi. The plane was conveying 183 individuals and seven group individuals. Most present day travelers planes have two motors and can work with one utilitarian motor.
“The flying machine, VT-ITE Neo, had an air swing back to Delhi. The group completed a motor inflight close down after the standard business system. The air ship arrived back securely at Delhi with 183 travelers and 7 group on board,” the aircraft said.
“The issue is under scrutiny and has been accounted for to the controller, an IndiGo representative said.
This was the second such motor tangle in an Indigo A320 Neo stream in three days. On June 1, an Indigo A320 Neo airplane from Kolkata to Port Blair prematurely ended take-off because of a specialized glitch in one of its motors.
