    On Friday last a SpiceJet Dash 8 ran off the runway at Jabalpur Airport after hitting a herd of wild boar. All 49 passengers and 4 crew left the aircraft unharmed but 9 wild boar were killed.

    Rumours that Spicejet fed the the passengers a curried pork dinner while waiting for further transport proved unfounded !

          It just goes to show that the "dangerous" part of a flight is not necessarily over when the aircraft meats up with the runway.

              According to the preliminary report there was some confusion between Barnyard Traffic Control (BTC) and the squeal code assigned to the hamsponders.
