Air India Express 737 Crashes at Mangalore Airport – Over 150 Perished – May 23, 2010

Cornwall ON – A 737 crashed in India killing over 150 people.   The flight was inbound from Dubai.


Mangalore airport lies on top of a hill with steep drops at the end of each of its two runways. One of the runways was extended in 2006 to accommodate larger planes like the Boeing 737.

The airline said the plane had overshot the runway as it came into land at about 0600 (0030 GMT) and crashed into a wooded valley.

We’ll update this story as more information becomes available.
