Top aviation ministry official Prabhat Kumar, Air India chairman and managing
director Rohit Nandan with airline's executive director Vinita Bhandari doing the
small religious puja at Delhi airport on September 8, 2012 after Air India's first
Boeing Dreamliner 787 landed from Charleston (via Frankfurt) bearing VT-ANH.
The AI-170 flight landed at 1654 Indian Standard Time. It was operated by
Air India's pilots A Soman, Amitabh Singh, Arvind Kathpalia and Nikhil Dongre
with lead flight attendant Sonam Lepcha and dozen engineers and staff. The slight
drizzle just before the landing on runway 10/28 was perfect setting.
Wonder why the aviation minister Ajit Singh, DGCA, aviation secretary,
didn't show up ?
