Aircraft meets accident as fox jumps on its wheel

October 31, 2013

A Dash 8 aircraft of Regent Airways met an accident on the runway at the Cox’s Bazar Airport on Wednesday evening after a fox jumped on its front wheels.
The 15 passengers and four crew on board, however, were unhurt when the accident took place at about 6:45pm, claimed the airway’s chief commercial officer, Ashish Roy Chowdhury.
The hydraulic part of the front wheel was so badly damaged that the aircraft needed a repair, suspending its scheduled return flight at about 7:00pm.
But, witnesses said some of them sustained slight injuries when the aircraft was suddenly put on the brake on the taxiway due to the fox.
A team of technicians was on the way to Cox’ Bazar to repair the aircraft as the pilots were unwilling to fly-back to Dhaka immediately.
