Plane Crash in India Under Investigation

Air India Flight IX-812 overshot the runway at Mangalore International Airport, hit a wall and crashed Saturday morning according an India civil aviation regulator; the aviation accident killed 158 people. Eight people survived the crash of the Boeing 737 passenger jet, which took off from Dubai. Neither the pilot nor the co-pilot reported any problems before the crash landing.

According to the Indian government, families would receive approximately $4,260 US dollars for each deceased passenger or just over $1,000 for each injured passenger. Air India announced that victims’ families would receive just over $21,000 for each deceased victim over the age of twelve and about half that much for those under the age of twelve.

The NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) is scheduled to arrive in India on Tuesday, May 25th to begin its investigation. India has not suffered an aviation disaster since 2000, when a jet crashed while trying to land in Patna, killing 60 people aboard.
