An undated video is going viral in the Twitter space of an Indian Coast Guard Dornier 228 coming in for landing at the HAL’s facility in Chakeri in Kanpur after suffering a left engine failure. Aircraft is believed to be coming in from Chennai to HAL’s Kanpur facility where Dornier 228 is manufactured and where it also has a Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul facility for the aircraft type.

In the video, it can be seen that the pilot after landing the aircraft on the landing strip tried hard to keep the aircraft straight but due to pulling force coming from its right engine, he veered into the soft ground before hitting a structure.

While the Indian Coast Guard is yet to officially comment on the incident it seems the aircraft is salvageable due to quick thinking of the pilot and might have suffered minor damages to its front section.
