  • Air India flight hits wall on takeoff, diverts to Mumbai, pilots grounded

    Neither the wall nor the aircraft look happy.

    I predict someone will mention tire pressure monitoring systems.

      Was there a 40ft high wall at the end of the runway?

            Amazing the engines didn't hit anything looking at the fuselage damage. Also startling the pilots didn't notice the impact...???

                Takeoff Performance Monitoring System

                  5 feet apparently. And supposedly more than 900 feet past the end of the runway.
