Passengers panicked when a flight from Delhi to Jabalpur suddenly smelled of smoke. The plane was flying at an altitude of 5,000 feet and due to safety concerns, the plane landed back in Delhi due to smoke coming from the cabin.
Spice Jet flight SG-2862 took off from the capital Delhi to Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh today at 6.15 am. The plane was flying at an altitude of about 5,000 feet when suddenly smoke billowed from the cabin. The passengers and the flight crew were shocked by this, and the flight was hastily landed in Delhi. After that, the flight landed again in Delhi at about 7 o'clock. No incident occurred in this incident.
A related video has been released. In it, as the smoke surrounds the passengers, they use newspapers and booklets to drive away from the smoke. The Civil Aviation Authority said an investigation has been launched into the incident.
The Civil Aviation Authority, which has demanded a detailed report from SpiceJet, has said that a technical fault could have been the cause of the incident.
This is the second time that such a malfunction has occurred in a Spice Jet aircraft in recent times. Already, on June 19, a flight from Patna to Delhi caught fire, and had to make an emergency landing at Patna again.
