New Delhi/Patna: The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has corroborated the version of private carrier SpiceJet that a bird hit led to the emergency landing of its flight at Bihta Airforce Station in Patna after its left wing caught fire on Sunday.

Media reports said the failure of engine 1 on the Patna-Delhi SpiceJet aircraft led to an emergency landing with 185 passengers on board.

Meanwhile, SpiceJet in a statement said: "On June 19, 2022, SpiceJet B737-800 aircraft was operating SG-723 (Patna-Delhi). On takeoff, during rotation, cockpit crew suspected bird hit on Engine #1."

"As a precautionary measure and as per SOP, Captain shutdown the affected engine and decided to return to Patna. The aircraft landed safely in Patna and passengers were safely deboarded. Post flight inspection showed bird hit with 3 fan blades damaged," it said.
