New Delhi: A major calamity was averted at Indira Gandhi Airport in Delhi, on Friday, when two aircrafts came in front of each other on the runway. The incident triggered panic among the passengers and the authorities.

The incident took place at around 1100 hours, on Friday, when Air India Flight No. 156 was ready to take off from Delhi to Goa, and at the same time Indigo Flight No. 398 was given clearance to land on the same runway by the Air Traffic Control (ATC).

Noticing the blunder, ATC immediately asked Air India plane to cancel its take-off to avoid the collision with Indigo. An internal probe has also been issued in this matter.

The incident took place hours after Prime Minister Narendra Modi went to the airport to receive his Bangladeshi counterpart Sheikh Hasina, who arrived here on a four-day visit.
