Air India Express said there were 7 survivors among the 160 passengers and 6 crew on board its Boeing B737 jet arriving from Dubai. The plane overshot the hilltop runway as it tried to land and burst into flames in a forested valley beyond, the “BBC” reports. Air India Express began operations about 5 years ago as an offshoot of the state run Air India. The aircraft was less than 3 years old.
Sympathy goes out to all the victims of this horrible accident.
