SpiceJet Boeing 737 – 800, VT-SGU, had a ground incident on 6th December at about 8 pm at Delhi airport
Aircraft was parked at bay number 130
It started taxiing to operate a commercial flight out of Delhi airport loaded with passengers
Airplane port wing tip contacted a light post (electric pole) besides the taxiway
Incident is being investigated by Accident Investigation Board.
Its likely that the aircraft could be grounded for 4-6 weeks with $1 million or more in repairs besides the revenue loss.
Wonder if old center line were not properly erased at the Delhi airport and created a mirage or whether the lady pilot wasn't careful enough.
