Rahul Gandhi's flight from Delhi to Hubli develops technical snag”

Rahul Gandhi's special aircraft flew from New Delhi to Hubli but it was a turbulent landing.

Rahul Gandhi will arrive at Kaveri College Ground in Gonikoppa on Friday afternoon at 2:30 pm and later pay tributes to the statues of Goddess Kaveri, General Thimayya, and Field Marshal K M Cariappa and then proceed towards the Government Primary School Ground to address a public rally. The aircraft had Rahul Gandhi, Kaushal Vidyartee, Rampreet, Rahul Gautam (SPG officer) and Rahul Ravi. While the weather outside was sunny, normal and not windy as per passengers and weather forecast.

In the complaint to the Karnataka police chief Neelamani Raju, the party said that several "unexplained technical errors" occurred as the flight was on course from Delhi to Hubbali.

An FIR has reportedly been registered at the Gokul Police Station in Hubbali and the complaint is likely to be forwarded to the Director General of Civil Aviation.

" At around 10:45 am the aircraft suddenly tilted heavily on the left side and the altitude dipped steeply, combined with violent shuddering of the aircraft body".

The passengers also heard "clanking noises" from one side of the plane and learnt that the flight's autopilot function was purportedly not working.

Rahul's office has also demanded that the private aircraft be grounded at Hubli airport with immediate effect and not be allowed to make another flight till the investigation gets completed, CNN-News18 reported.

Later in a tweet, Mr Vidyarthee called it the most "frightening experience in my life", referred to the plane going into what he called was a "free fall" but admired Mr Gandhi's composure and calmness "as he stood beside pilots trying to save the situation". According to sources, the pilots will be questioned because they were the ones operating the plane and should have answers to the unusual aircraft movements.

The aircraft VT- AVH is a Falcon 2000 which belongs to Religare Aviation limited, registered in Nehru Place, Delhi on 04-02-2011.
