    This was reportedly an attempt to RWY 10 after an initial go-around from RWY 28. METAR says winds 260 at 12kts.

    First million-dollar question is: Why the tailwind approach to 10? Both ends have ILS and avherald reports that there were no NOTAM's regarding 28 being unserviceable.

    Also wondering if the ground-spoilers were somehow disarmed between landing attempts. But so far it appears to be simply a late touchdown on a fast tailwind landing with a plane that likes to float flown by a crew that wants to get there.

    The aircraft, en route from Dubai, skidded off the runway and broke in two at Calicut airport upon landing, India's aviation authority said.

    Rescue operations are under way, with emergency services at the scene.

    At least two people, including the pilot, have died, the BBC has been told.
